Are you interested in a lively discussion on how to improve your use of five contemporary leadership styles by using a Leadership and Communication Matrix developed by workshop leader, Dr. Peter Mora? The discussion also shares actual examples of how President Theodore Roosevelt demonstrated significant, intuitive skills in using contemporary leadership styles to obtain his extensive achievements. Dr. Mora is a retired president of the Atlantic Cape Community College (2005-2016).
