What are the traits of an effective leader? The role of the leader is changing from decision-maker to enabler. Knowing when to step in is just as important as knowing when to step back.

But in our modern, complex world of work, it’s becoming increasingly impossible to operate in that way. Add to that all of the books, [...]
