Twelve Days of Leadership

I first learned about Brad Kolar’s blog fromthe leadership articles that Accenture used to send out. Since then I have subscribed to his RSS feeds and have enjoyed his articles.

This is one of the best ones I’ve read so far, so I just had to re-port despite it being out-of-season. (I had kept it in my “things-to-write-about” archive before I started this blog)
