In today’s world we need leadership now. We need people of all ages from all backgrounds to take advantage of the myriad of opportunities that exist to make a difference.
The path to leadership begins in the mind. Leaders think differently. They see the world differently. Leaders are ordinary people that understand that they make a difference and have made the decision to determine the kind of difference they will make.
We all possess the capacity for leadership, but only those who cultivate it will ever become truly effective leaders. By providing articles, features, books, multimedia and other resources, we would like to encourage you to develop the leader in you — to become an active participant in shaping your future and the future of others.
