Welcome back!

What makes a great leader? Well, how about competence, vision, integrity, the ability to motivate men and women to do their very best, and an attitude of “the buck stops here” when it comes to professional accountability? This kind of real leadership is a rare and precious thing. So we dedicate this week to the true leaders of the business world. What would we do without them?
