5 Steps to Becoming a Charismatic Leader!

Posted by Thao Bui on May 30, 2014 10:43:00 AM

 “The most dangerous leadership myth… asserts that people simply either have certain charismatic qualities or not. That’s nonsense; in fact the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.” - Warren Bennis, Leadership Scholar
