Leading Like Braveheart!

As a Scotsman and an accomplished bagpipe player, I designed a leadership program with a Twist. The program is a leadership development best practice based on the true story of William Wallace in the movie Braveheart. I outline the key components of true leadership when the environment is challenging and often filled with change and issues. The tactics used in Braveheart can easily be transfered into the corporate world! This program can be delivered in keynote form or a 3 hour facilitated program. Kilt is optional.
