SENSE FROM SENSEI: TIME FOR A SPRING CLEAN?

Henry A. Kissinger said, " The task of the Leader is to get his people from where they are to where they have not been".
With this in mind in this month's Sense from Sensei, Malcolm Follos looks at The Succession Time Bomb and how we prepare Leaders for the future.

With delegates leaving the session with real clarity on how they might scrutinise their organisation to find improvement opportunities, read more to discover what they discussed.
