Reading Corner

Everything I learned was through trial and error, reading books, formal education, mentorship and executive coaching. This has created a strong desire in me to give back to other aspiring leaders or seasoned leaders who are challenged to build followership, high performing organizations and true cultural transformation. I enjoy helping those who have a heart for leadership and a desire to be a culture change agent in this digital era.
