How well do you understand the people in your organization? Do you possess a clear grasp of the values that inspire their behavior? These are key to your journey to becoming a better leader and leading positive change. It begins with increased self-awareness.
Tracy and Nick discuss how having a balanced organization between detailed and visionary leaders sets teams up for reaching significant results.

People who lead through their vision of what is possible create something others might not see due to the 'noise' around them.
