how to grow leaders

10 min. long. It's not worth 1 credit. It should be the whole book. This intro to a book should be free.

Summary 's Too Short

Any additional comments?

One can get the idea of how to identify leaders within an organization however this does not do much for the title of the book. It's just too short!
