“Leadership is a choice, not a position”

Stephen Covey
The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

In today’s highly matrixed, less hierarchical and more agile organisations, leadership is no longer limited to the c-suite and is a trait displayed by employees all across the organisation.

Defined as ‘a mindset that demonstrates impact, influence and inspiration’, effective leaders create impact to drive results, influence to spread passion, and inspiration to motivate team-mates and customers.
