Quiet Leadership with Nicole Smith 

Leadership with Nicole Smith.  Nicole shares her leadership style.

Quiet leadership is a conscious choice to lead with a focus on being open-minded and gentle. It’s about being approachable, liked, respected, compassionate – nice, if you will – and communicating with people using a one-on-one approach instead of the typical one-on-many format.
