About

Leadership Your Way is a leadership and influence blog started by leadership consultant and executive coach Denise Brouillette that provides leadership, management, and influence tips that readers can put to use immediately. Denise was founder and CEO of LeaderXpress, a leadership development consultancy, where her legacy and work are carried forward by managing partners Andrea Jaffee, Betsy Flanagan, and Lisa Duerre.

Leadership style is unique to the individual. While there is a set of proven best practices for leaders, the application of those vital skills is distinct for each of us. On this blog we write about accessing the best of one’s own way and putting it out into the world. We inspire readers to bring out their unique way of leading, both in their lives and in their work.

Join the conversation. We invite you to subscribe to our blog via email or RSS and comment on the posts you read here.
