While Dr. Cynthia recognizes that there are several styles of leadership, it has been her experience that collectively achieving the team goal or objective is the type of leadership that produces lasting results both for the leader and their followers. Dr. Cynthia is available to share more on her "servitude" leadership philosophy with likeminded businesses, corporations and nonprofits worldwide.
