    Leadercast 2015 – The Brave One

    squareleadercastJoin us in positively impacting the leadership landscape!  An essential behavior for any leader is the act of bravery. Bravery is not a moniker that can be bought…it cannot be self-appointed. Bravery is not attributed to everyone, but is reserved for those whose innovation in their industry cause them to stand out from the crowd, whose unyielding effort and error push their organizations into new territories, and whose boldness compels them to stand up for those less fortunate. These are the brave ones.

    Join Yankton business leaders at this event to hear stories of leadership and bravery from: Andy Stanley, Seth Godin, Rorke Denver, Malala Yousafzai, Rudy Giuliana, Bill McDermott, Ed Catmull, Aja Brown and Bill and Giuliana Rancic.  Read their Bio’s HERE
