My latest Real Life Leadership column - If your managers are AWOL, leading from the middle becomes vital - is now online.
This column, and the four that will follow over the next two plus months are previews of a presentation and four workshops that will be given during our second Lessons-In-Leadership conference here in Asheville, NC. The event will take place on Tuesday, January 20 (yes,Innaguration Day). You can find out all the information at the WNC Leaders website.
The simple idea captured by the phrase "leading from the middle" is that everyone is in a position to lead. His or her leadership will be different from the head of the company, but it is leadership in effect.
If you live within a couple hours of Asheville, it will well worth your time to come and participate in our Lessons in Leadership event this year. It will be both inspiring and practicial. How many things can you say that about?
