What Makes a Leader?

What is leadership? How are leaders developed? Am I an effective leader?

At More Than Sound, we offer leadership development tools for professionals at every level. Our material will help you understand why individual leadership skills matter – and how to develop them. Our team of internationally recognized authors, educators and scientists represent a range of disciplines that, together, form an emotional intelligence-based approach to leadership development.

We strive to continually deepen the understanding of three simple questions:

  • What skills are a part of positive and effective leadership?
  • Why is each skill important?
  • How is each leadership skill developed?

Everybody can become a leader. But, leadership skills need to be developed with care and attention. We offer science-based practices and draw from contemplative traditions to cultivate the qualities of leadership. This development leads to increased satisfaction and better results at work and in our personal life. It is the foundation of emotional and social leadership.
