The Advanced Leadership Course conducted by John Engels in Beirut, Lebanon was one of the most valuable experiences in my life. I had a rare and great opportunity to reflect on myself, and to clarify my thinking in a way that is difficult to achieve in my very active and crowded life.

 

As a financial professional and father, it was as if I was standing atop a mountain, watching myself from a great height that enabled me to see each and every detail of what was before unknown, and to see the direction and trail of my life.

 

In short, as I strive to be the best leader possible, I have learned the importance of first leading myself.
