The Structured Leadership Approach to Developing People with Sean Fleming


If you are not continuously improving and expanding your leadership skillset, you introduce risk...

As a leader, it's easy to feel accustomed to what happens day-to-day.

On one side there is benefit to following a routine...

On the other side, you will introduce risk.

Sean Fleming was at this exact point when he joined as VP of Customer Engagement at Zendrive.

What did Sean do?

He joined the first group ever in the B2B Leaders Academy.

One of the most important things Sean had to do after joining Zendrive was to market his leadership and build relationships with other leaders who were also new to the organization.
