Are you an engineer or scientist early in your career, or a student in either of these fields, looking to develop your leadership capabilities? Learn from David Colcleugh, former CEO of DuPont Canada, leadership educator, and author of Everyone a Leader. This book outlines innovative learning frameworks for acquiring competence in leadership that were developed at DuPont Canada applied to different concepts throughout the book. Everyone a Leader is specifically tailored to meet the needs of those in engineering and scientific fields. Colcleugh refers to value-added processes and systems familiar to engineers and scientists to illustrate how they can benefit from developing leadership capabilities in addition to their technical skills. These theories come to life in the anecdotes that Colcleugh shares from throughout his career.
