Most of us are conditioned to think that Leaders are “born.” In other words, you are either a born or leader or you are not. This is not true according to Brian Holmes who shares with us today that leaders are developed. Developing into a leader however, is not something one does so well alone. All great leaders have mentors and coaches because they know all too well that they cannot see their own blindspots. If you are seeking your inner leader, join us today to discover how you can create the right supports around you and fulfill your own destiny!

Leadership in business is essential yet often misunderstood. Leadership begins inside the leader; however most of the focus starts on the actions (external). Matt Miller is President and founder of School Spirit Vending. Matt talks about the culture of his company and how focusing on culture has shifted his impact. He shares the insights he has gained in building a very successful business that helps schools raise money for educational programs.
