How well do YOU exemplify these two key factors for greater people-leadership success? Watch below the ‘#2 video from my series called “Inspiring Leadership Tips in 3 Minutes or Less,” which is based on my years of coaching executives to help them become better people leaders. Be honest … where would you rate yourself on a 1-10 scale for each of these two factors, if 1 is low and 10 is high? https://www.linkedin.com/posts/brendabence_inspiringleadership-selfleadership-executivecoach-activity-6508623887717236736-_aoR
