A Scientific Approach to Leadership & Leadership Development for Superior Performance
David Burnham described his pioneering work with David C. McClelland in the 1960’s on High Performing Leaders.

David will only be able to give a ‘flavour’ of his work but rather unusually, it’s a data-driven approach.
