In this module we will explore who you are AND who you want to be as a leader. It is the foundation of the model as we cannot lead others to places we have not yet been ourselves. We will examine what we are modeling, its impact and our opportunity to grow ourselves in service of others. This will be accomplished by digging into both “who we are being as a leader” and the resultant “what we are doing as a leader”
