Master the art of leadership.

Up to 80% of new leaders are not accomplished in two or more of the critical skills that modern leaders need to be effective, and say they felt ill-prepared for the demands of their new role. Companies that focus on development in these key areas can strengthen their ability to weather challenging circumstances. The Forbes Leadership Forum will unlock your potential with real-world lessons from founders who understand the challenges of modern leadership.
