Your Best Self:
You need to become very aware of all aspects of who
you are, what you do well, and what you must work on
to optimize your leadership.
Your Unique Brand:
Once you have a functional inventory of your gifts,
they need to be organized into a unique and personal
product that will become your brand.
Passion: This is an exercise in enhancing your
emotional maturity so that you possess resilience and
flexibility to encounter opposition and respond with
rapid, direct, and effective actions.
Your Opportunity Moment
It is imperative that you develop an ability to perceive and act when your Opportunity Moment presents itself. In a series of exercises, you will develop this most important and essential quality of Strategic Direction.
