Step-UpListen Now "Leadership: Its Always The Right Stuff at Home and at Work" with Chris Efessiou on the Step Up and Play Big Show (3.26.14)

Join Chris Ruisi and his guest Chris Efessiou on Wednesday, March 26 at 9 AM Pacific Time on VoiceAmerica Business Channel as they explore how parenting and leadership work hand in hand to build strong and caring family relationships. There discussions will focus on the fact that Leadership is a concept, not a person. It becomes a physical entity when one chooses to embody the characteristics of a leader. Whether you are creating a leader at work or at home, no leadership ingredient is more important than "teaching" and modeling the desired affect by your own example, because leadership cannot be delegated! During their interview Chris and Chris will examine in detail such important topics as Leading from the Heart; Leading and Developing Leaders; Dream, Communicate, and Act; and If it isn't Broken... Break it as they drill down into this important topic. Want to be a better family and business leader? Then be sure to listen in.
