According to +Les McKeown, the real secret of leadership is that “it happens all the time, almost anywhere you look, and it’s frankly
not that diﬃcult.”
There’s often confusion over what leadership is, whether it’s defined as only the hero in an epic plot or someone who is permanently over-scheduled and over-worked. So then, what exactly does “Real World Leadership” look like?
It’s a topic that Les addresses’ in his third book, Do Lead, and our topic for #CMGRHangout on Friday, June 20th at 2pm EST!
+Jonathan Brewer and +Sherrie Rohde will be hosting +Les McKeown on the hangout, *if you’d like to join in the conversation—be sure to let us know in advance.* +Carrie Keenan and +Sarah Nagel will be moderating the Twitter chat using #CMGRHangout.
