Leadership: the one thing you can’t delegate or outsource
If you are serious about achieving your goals, delegating or outsourcing leadership to someone else is incredibly dangerous. There is no clearer example of this than what happened to the folks who trusted Bernie Madoff with their money and their financial goals. They could give Madoff no direction and had no knowledge of how their money was disappearing. In essence, they made Bernie their leader for achieving their dreams. Take charge of your dreams, be a leader in all that is important to you. Learn how through the knowledge and leadership coaching services provided through Practical Leadership by Gary Clayton.

And all those specialists look for their best and most reliable source of leadership to be you. Building your leadership skills is your surest path to greater success.
