Leadership Isn't What You Think It is.

Many people believe there are “born” leaders. That there are people with innate skills and talents that make them natural leaders. And while there are people with abilities that support the development of leadership skills, Tim Luppinacci, CEO of Baker Donelson, believes everyone can lead. He believes — actually, he knows — that everyone has leadership skills deep inside them just waiting for the right conditions to grow. That you can be a leader regardless of your education, your degree, your skill or your talent, your background, your race, gender or ethnic heritage. All you have to do is want to learn, grow and lead.

Tim explores these concepts and ideas as a guest on the podcasts listed here and also in his Everybody Leads program, which exists to inspire you, to teach you to embrace your own leadership skills, to nurture those skills and to help you see that leadership might not be what you think it is.
