5 Things People Must Change About The Way They Lead

Written by Gianfranco D'Aversa.

Leadership is about sharing, giving – making those around you better. Leadership is about uniting and inspiring teams to optimally perform. Leadership is caring about a societal cause that the business can influence. This is what most businesses refer to as corporate social responsibility.

The program looks not only at what's going wrong in high schools, but how to put it right. As it happens, the solution is not a mystery; but putting it into practice will involve a major shift in current policies. In 1970, the U.S. had the highest rates of high school graduation in the world, now it has one of the lowest.
