It takes discipline to be able to say something insightful, meaningful, and motivational when you only have a few moments to collect your thoughts, but as Judith Humphrey explains in <strong>Impromptu</strong>, preparation is your key to success. You’ll learn to prepare to be spontaneous, seize moments for coaching and leadership, and inspire with confidence in any off-the-cuff exchanges that come your way.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?

At the center of this approach is change—specifically, a new mindset that changes the way people see their relationships and commitments to others. This outward mindset helps a leader become the kind of person others like, work hard for, and admire. By focusing on relationships rather than self, individuals and organizations can enhance teamwork, innovation, and overall performance.</p> </div><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-audio-available"> <div class="field-label">Has Audio?
