What Clients are saying
“A remarkable, imaginative and life-changing book. During my forty years as a journalist, I simply figured that the great leaders I interviewed all possessed some intangible, unteachable ability to inspire those around them. It just never occurred to me that leadership could be taught. Then I read Leadership Language.”
