We have all seen the negative consequences of poor leadership. We have probably been victims of bad leadership ourselves at one time or another. This is because for many leaders in different organizations, it is an altercation between delivering results and managing people.
Leaders cannot maintain long-term performance with this approach. The conditions of the day, especially with recent outages, require a management approach that places equal emphasis on results and people’s needs. That’s the formula for success today’s top companies use to thrive through disruptions, attract the best and brightest, and stay on top.
Leaders can unleash their power and the potential of everyone around them. For Dr. Ken Blanchard, a bestselling author and leadership expert who has helped thousands of organizations become more people-oriented, customer-centric, performance-driven and socially responsible, “When you lead at a higher level, people work together in a way that excites customers and gets results. Leadership is something you do with people, not people, ”Blanchard continues. “We hope to inspire leaders to go beyond short-term thinking and focus on the right goal. We want to teach leaders how to empower people to unleash their incredible potential. “

It appears when Boris asks Dr. Blanchard the main subject of all his work, writing, lecturing, and consulting for the past 40 years. Discover the kind of leadership you think the world desperately needs today and how leaders can work for the greater good.
Counted among the most influential and compassionate leadership and management experts in the world today, Dr. Blanchard is respected for his life of pioneering research and thought leadership, especially in the day-to-day management of people and businesses.
