About This Webinar

This webinar will discuss the mistakes leaders make in many cases that can be catastrophic for others and in many cases are avoidable. Being a leader comes with a host of responsibilities, including handling personnel issues and setting a good example. You’re often held to high expectations as the person in charge, and managing an entire team of people can be intimidating. There is always room to learn and grow from experience and help others around you to become a better leader.
