Course Overview

In an era of hyper-competition and non-stop disruption, the only way to stand out from the crowd is to stand for something innovative. The true mark of a leader is the courage to take a bold course of action and see it through. Also, leaders instil in their people a hope for success and a belief in themselves. Positive leaders empower people to accomplish their goals. To paraphrase Ralph Waldo Emerson, leaders do not follow where the path may lead. Instead, they go where there is no path and leave a trail.
