FLG_009 Wendy Born on the surprising connection between raising kids and raising leaders.

People challenges never really seem to go away do they? Sometimes your best and worst moments are with the SAME people. The key is realising you’ll have those challenges consistently and having a game plan to not just work through it but also thrive as a leader IN it. Wendy Born takes a refreshingly honest approach to what it takes to raise leaders at work by understanding what it takes to raise kids at home. The problems, disagreements and disconnections seem to be the same. What’s even more interesting is the answers seem to be the same, just applied differently in your workplace. With an elegant model and practical application in her new book ‘Raising Leaders’ Wendy will help you solve real leadership issues in an empowering way.
