HOW DISCIPLLINED ARE
As a Business Coach, emerging
organizational business trends become obvious to me as I
work with individuals from different organizations to
maximize their performance and make their life better. Recently, I have had
top business leaders requesting help on delegation. I responded that I
have several tools for successful delegation that I would
share with them (and you in future newsletters) and before
we deploy these tools, there is something that needs to be
