What is the game-changer in leadership development?

In their new book on leadership, which expands our understanding of emotional intelligence, Jane Firth and Andrea Zintz deconstruct the mysteries of presence and reconstruct them into actionable skills for leaders.

In Grit, Grace and Gravitas you will learn how grace, and the way it enhances the impact of your grit and your gravitas, is the game-changing strength of exemplary leadership and executive presence.
