|FranklinCovey Launches The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership|
New Leadership Solution Prepares Leaders at All Levels to Overcome Difficult Challenges in Today’s Workplace
With more than 25 years of experience in creating world-class leadership development content and solutions, The 4 Essential Roles of Leadership was created in response to a two-year research project conducted by FranklinCovey to understand the most vital leadership roles.
