Leading with Intention

Every interaction--whether you’re presenting to an entire organization or talking one-on-one with a colleague--is an opportunity to influence and inspire others to achieve extraordinary results Your ability to do that depends on two factors:

• How aware you are of your impact
• The care and discipline with which you choose your actions, day-by-day, moment-by-moment
