  • Avoid these 8 common leadership flaws

    22 September 2017

    Are you a leader who disappoints your team?

    I always like to hear what people say about poor leaders they have experienced because we can learn so much from them. At some recent leadership workshops I facilitated, we discussed leaders who have inspired us and what was disappointing and needed improvement. I found some common complaints.
