It was Peter Drucker who eloquently and succinctly stated that "management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things." Great leaders possess dazzling social intelligence, a zest for change, and above all, vision that allows them to set their sights on the "things" that truly matters. Not a bad skill set for the rest of us, either. Within the leadership arena, B.E.G focuses on what makes a leader including the following but not limited to;
• What is Charisma and Charismatic leadership? • Leaders: Born or made? • When do we prefer male over female leaders? • What are the habits of effective leaders? • Why some people emerge as leaders? • What is bad leadership?
These questions are immensely important to leadership. Leadership has been described as “a process of social influence in which one person can enlist the aid and support of others in the accomplishment of a common task". We all can develop our leadership skills to be effective and efficient in whatever capacity we lead. Therefore, B.E.G will outline a series of steps (customized to our client needs) emphasizing the importance of setting goals based on a strategic application using qualitative and quantitative analysis for long term stability and growth (Time and Organizational Management).

Communication We live in a techno-savvy world and communication is the buzz word. It is all about communication! Communication is defined as a process by which we assign and convey meaning in an attempt to create shared understanding.

Use of these processes is developmental and transfers to all areas of life: home, school, community, work, and beyond. It is through communication that collaboration and cooperation occur. Learning the proper skills is vital for navigating through life.
