Excerpt from the Science of Leadership Academy: Overview of Accountability

We've gotten so many requests to see a sample video from the Science of Leadership Academy (our collection of 20+ hours of online leadership training) that we've put up a snippet for you!

After you watch the video, if you want a full trial of the Science of Leadership Academy, visit here and request a demo.
