Leaders As Teachers

Business and learning leaders alike expect great things from leaders-as-teachers (LAT) programs: Enhanced professional development opportunities for leaders who teach, deeper levels of engagement for employee learners, and support for an organizational culture that thrives on learning, to name just a few.
