Leading without a Doubt.” launched in October 2014. Go to http://www.filipinaleadership.org/ for more info. Key themes for individual chapters include disruptions in your life that you have overcome and disruptions that you have initiated; leadership competencies you developed for yourself, for leading others, and your organization; and, legacy building for the next generation.
