Description

Description

Leadership and management are what we focus on at the Boston Business School. What’s the difference between a true leader and a mere caretaker? How is top business performance achieved? Why it’s not enough to just develop good concepts. The spark of enthusiasm for them must also jump to those from whom concrete results are expected. And what must you do, to become a role-model executive? There are a lot of self-proclaimed gurus out there who invent popular trends and lead people to believe they have patent solutions to everything. Our studies and long years of business experience have shown that these kinds of solutions don’t exist. Above-average performance in business is the result of numerous management qualities. To demonstrate these and practice them is the goal of the 2-part International Leadership Program.
