Leadership starts in your own life and then radiates outward as an example to others.

Dave Arch wrote in his Book 'Transforming Leaders - The Sandler Way' "You cannot expect to transform a Team, or an Organisation, until you've transformed yourself."

There are 7 essential qualities that are reflected and exemplified in the character and work habits of great Leaders.
