Business leadership is more complex than most realize. The Above Board Chamber of Florida is helping Southwest Florida companies better understand that in a pair of “Team Dynamics and Growing Companies” luncheon seminars in August.
“When we say that a leader is leading a ‘large team’ of employees, that one leader actually leads a handful of subordinate leaders, who then lead other subordinate leaders,” Above Board Chamber founder Jeanne Sweeney said. “The key is having the right leaders on your team to grow your company.”
