Presenting: New Leadership White Paper

Posted on

We are excited to announce the release of yet another white paper, this time on project leadership.  Leadership Is Taken, Not Given is the culmination of a series of content that got Project Assistants CEO, Gus Cicala, selected to be a contributing author to The Keys to Our Success, selected as the keynote speaker for ProjectSummit 2015, and that inspired two workshops on project leadership: one for project leaders and another for executives.

Now, the key elements of each of these books, talks, and programs have been condensed into a white paper, and we are providing it for free to our loyal blog followers.
