As Dean of Global Leadership Development, Melissa Wood spearheads all learning and development business-building programs for Etech. She shares insights into the next generation of leaders and how you can build your personal leadership development program.
John Maxwell had a tremendous influence on Etech and Melissa ever since he spoke at an Etech company event.
Etech is more than willing to invest in leadership development tools to produce the next generation of leaders.
Melissa’s passion is working with people one on one and helping develop their leadership skills.
Lessons learned about the next generations through teaching and mentoring kids and young adults for the last 15 years.
Reinvent continuously to keep up with the changes of the new generations
The next generations want relationships
Grouping information is key when relaying new things to the next generation
Melissa’s biggest takeaway for new leaders is to remember that you are not your smartest when you’re on your own. Tap into the different gifts and talents of the people around you.
