Leadership has been studied since the beginning of civilization. Yet, it remains a somewhat elusive characteristic. This webinar will demystify leadership by looking at the history of how leaders have been recognized and developed. It will also address the interplay between Nature - those innate characteristics that leaders bring to the table and Nurture - how leadership skills can be taught, honed, and improved. Webinar participants will gain an increased understanding of what constitutes effective leadership and what others expect of those they follow. Attention will also be paid to how organizations develop their leaders in order to compete successfully in the global marketplace.
