It requires sweat equity, but so does anything that produces great achievement,

Key takeaways include:

  • How ordinary people can become “extraordinary” leaders
  • The critical “Vision-Decision-Action-Desire (VDAD Formula)” for excellence in leadership and strategies for implementing the V-D-A-D formula
  • The power of “Better” for creating leaders at every level of the organization!
