Book by John Gronski



"As Iron sharpens Iron, so one person sharpens another", can mean many different things to different people. For many it speaks to mentorship and the responsibility a leader has to develop future leaders. Picture a leader reaching their hand up to someone wiser and more experienced to continue to learn and grow, while at the same time reaching their other hand downward to help their followers along the way.

In this program John Gronski will harnesses the power of approaches found in his book Iron-Sharpened Leadership to teach fellow leaders how they can excel as a servant leader by implementing operationally based skills such as cultivating trust in their organization, linking their values to specific behaviors, making decisions, setting forth a vision, communicating well and practicing ways to help themselves and their followers become more resilient.
