Every leader, every motivator of people, every agitator of change, was once inspired by someone else. A light was switched on, a clear path illuminated, often in rocky seas and sometimes when least expected. Seek inspiration in CCI’s Lighthouse Leadership Series that brings together leaders in business, captains of industry, champions of people and shapers of change.
