Leader Development Competency Model
At Saunders we believe that leader development starts with self - understanding your own strengths, weaknesses, goals, and values, & developing the critical professional skills needed to succeed in your career. As leaders become more self-aware, they are then in a stronger position to lead others and lead teams. Leadership is an awesome responsibility and leaders have the ability to influence change and solve complex problems across diverse organizations but it requires a commitment to learning new skills and developing a leadership mindset. Work on the leadership skills now that will increase your value and differentiate you from the rest, launching you on the path for career success!
