Leadership is not a secret, and neither is the success of leadership programs within an organization. Inviting others to understand the “power of leadership” accelerates the growth of our potential leaders, as well as the achievements of organizational goals. Bringing people along and sharing leadership helps coworkers and team members understand why leadership is beneficial for their departments, as well as reinforces its importance to our stakeholders and decision-makers.
