As a woman leader, reveal your most authentic and effective leadership style for greater influence and impact

IMD’s Strategies for Leadership is a women’s leadership program, bringing together senior women leaders from around the world. The program is designed to enable you to develop greater influence and impact by revealing your most authentic and effective leadership style.
