GLS2013 Session 2 – Joseph Grenny – Mastering the skill of influence

GLS2012 – 7 – Patrick Lencioni – The Advantage: Organisational health

Patrick Lencioni has spoken at the GLS before, stepping to fill a session at short notice last year.

GLS2012 – 6 – Pranitha Timothy – Courage to Act

Following on from Carly Fiorina, Pranitha Timothy reminds us again that leadership is often not easy. Pranitha also brought into perspective the challenges that I face!
