Here are a few videos on the topic that might help us understand a bit more. Click on the titles to take you through to the videos.

    In my vision, a good leader is not born, is made… everything can be learned as long as we want to. So to lead a team correctly, we should be responsible, honest, capable of taking the right decision and to implement new ideas. I know about these from Toronto strategy consultant camp, which was held last year!
