Leadership behaviours + styles + context = success

Build confidence, change behaviours

"Changing behaviour (what we do or say) is the most important challenge for businesses trying to compete in a turbulent world. The central issue is never strategy, culture or systems. The core of the matter is always about changing the behaviour of people."

Prof. John kotter - Harvard Business School
