In fact, our online leadership training for women does just the opposite! It provides a platform for women to reflect deeply about the book and the online training they receive each month.

Following Well: 3 Secrets Great Leaders Know

While leadership sounds appealing, many consider following to be subservient. “I’ll never be a follower” is a statement we often hear.
