I had the great pleasure of working on a project aimed at raising awareness and skills related to high performing team leadership. Many thanks to Sunil Vadlamani at ExecutiveAcceleration in India for making this happen, and to my design and delivery conspirator Nikhil Raval from Learn Wisely for bringing his expertise and camaraderie to the process.
