Frank J. Papotto, Ph.D.'s curator insight, July 24, 2013 4:51 PM

These tips can be summed up by pointing out that great leaders realize that they must continually improve. Consequently, they must remain open to others and new perspectives while continuing to clearly convey in words and actions what they value and believe to be important for the future of their business. 

taniaATenthuse.me's comment, July 25, 2013 5:01 AM
