Lead Right is about exhibiting the behaviors of an Effective AND Virtuous Leader

Shared Leadership Team amplifies the ability to provide Virtuous Leadership to an organization. For this, trust, shared standards of virtue/moral excellence, and Mutual Competency are non-negotiables.

Leaders also face the Flux (peaks and valleys) – sometimes including dark nights of soul wondering if they made the right decisions. Share Leadership/Shield Lock enables him to battle the Flux.
