Get a legacy

Write your leadership manifesto

How does anyone learn anything? By getting their hands dirty and figuring it out. So, even though I’ve been studying leadership in the workplace for a decade, dipping my toe in here and there… I learned to lead over the past year, because of my family, because I had to. At our house, I’m the …
