Becoming You - The Key to Becoming a Leader

Most leadership courses and books fail to produce leaders because they focus on the wrong things. They treat leadership as if it’s a thing to do, a means to an end. Instead, leadership is a side-effect, a by-product of a way of being. In particular, leadership occurs as a result of being fully expressed as a human being in the pursuit of something worthwhile. In this Book Rapper version of Warren Bennis' classic book, On Becoming A Leader we explore the starting point for leadership.
