From RSM 
RSM’s Middle Market Business Index 2021 Infrastructure Special Report is now available.
After decades of watching America’s infrastructure decline, senior executives at middle market businesses are pushing to fix the nation’s basic systems, according to a recent survey of senior executives in middle market businesses conducted by RSM. In a striking shift in outlook these executives agree that the state of the nation’s infrastructure is hampering economic growth, not only at the national and the local levels, but also within their own organizations.

Mission-Critical Leadership: How Smart Managers Lead
Well in All Directions
Jon Lokhorst, Leadership Coach, Corporate Trainer, Author 
Held June 3, 2021

Most leadership development focuses on a single direction within the organizational hierarchy: downstream to subordinates. While it is important to be a good boss, leadership is much more than that. The best leaders learn to lead well in all directions. They lead upward to superiors and across among peers throughout the organization. And it all starts with self-leadership. This often overlooked or misunderstood leadership principle is essential to build a thriving and productive organizational culture.

Jon Lokhorst, CPA, PCC, is a leadership coach, corporate trainer, keynote speaker and the author of Mission-Critical Leadership: How Smart Managers Lead Well in All Directions. Read more about Jon.
