Mostly important, Jeff shows how anyone can develop leadership traits to create life-changing adjustments to get extraordinary results, whether that may mean getting a better following, group leadership, or inspiring others around you. For maximum impact, Jeff provides real-world, actionable tips to help attendees take immediate steps to apply his advice and his as leaders in their own careers.
