“We also realized that leaders are leaders not only in the HR profession but anywhere. A leader in any business context goes through a slew of experiences, positive as well as negative. A good leader demonstrates the ability to manage these experiences and learn life-changing lessons. We call these Crucible Experiences.” He added.
