Leadership isn’t in a title – it is in the ability to inspire and to motivate – and to take responsibility for that decision to ‘Charge!’. Christine Comaford, Author: “Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed” (Mwai Kibaki, president of Kenya).

Today’s buzz: Differently-abled. Seeking unique talent to enrich your workforce? Diversity and inclusion could open that door. The experts speak.
