Becoming a leader is not about education or pedigree or even native smarts. Most of the most successful leaders started life as a regular person just like you.

Certainly these leaders are smart and talented, but there are countless people even smarter and more talented who stall on the way.

Something else is going on. What is it, and what can the rest of us learn from such people to improve our own chances of accomplishment?

During this Webcast, Stephen Baum will explain the success secrets of prominent CEOs as well as the inner stories that have molded their leadership abilities. He’ll ferret out the men and women behind the public personas, explaining the life-shaping experiences they all have in common that turn out to be the foundation for true success in career and in life.

What You Will Learn

Stephen Baum provides an entirely new way of thinking about how to fulfill your dreams and aspirations. You’ll come away with the feeling that “if they can do it, so can I.” Join us as he explores:
  • 5 Core leadership traits that separate the best from the rest
  • How specific shaping experiences drive personal growth and development of these traits
  • What you can do to gain the experiences you need to build and hone your leadership abilities
  • The importance of seeking out guardian angels and your own personal board of directors
