Leadership with a Capital "D"
Many speakers have discussed the topic of leadership. Most will tell you that leaders are born and not made and vice versa. Some will say that delegation is the key to being a good leader. Others will tell you that without compassion for others and a vision for the future, then there is no way you can be a leader. In the grand scheme of project management leadership is a necessary skill and most aspects of leadership can be learned. In this presentation the speaker will demonstrate that the word "Leadership" is actually an acronym that depicts the key facets of a good leader.
