IBAW President's Circle Leadership Group

As the CEO, President, or Owner you are asked to produce more results with fewer resources, meet and exceed competition, innovate and motivate.  This creates very difficult teams and leadership challenges.  Leaders must encourage teamwork, bottom-up idea generation, alignment, loyalty and above all commitment. Rather than direct and dictate, leaders must inspire and motivate! For more information about this group, visit the President's Circle webpage here or contact Program Leader Steve Bobowski by clicking here.
