What Sets Great Leaders ApartInterview with Leadership Coach Lisa Anna Palmer“Progressive leaders realize that to build high-performing teams and achieve the success they need to live and work based on fundamental business principles that flow from a love for humanity and the desire for human connection. It is compassion, courage, and competence as a leader that inspires employees to do their very best and give the company a competitive edge. It is profundity, passion, purpose, and perseverance that helps leaders and employees to tap into what is important to them and to pursue their vision regardless of the obstacles they may encounter along the way.
