DisruptED TV presents Leading UnAfraid with Randy Speck.
Randy Speck believes Leadership is needed in so many industries but there may be no greater place for creativity, innovation and new ways of thinking than in education. His career has been in education but the passion has to do with assisting people, whether they be adults or children to be able to reach their full potential. Organizations, made up of people need to be constantly trained and developed into performing at higher levels than they were. There is nothing constant about the world we live in and business and education has to be flexible. That is why leadership is so important.
