Leadership is both art and science. It should be seen as something of a sacred calling, too, given the magnitude of the challenges we face. Dr. Jessica McWade argues that the best leaders walk what she calls The L Path, using Learning, Laughing, Losing and Living to inspire their people — and themselves.

Jessica C. McWade, Ed.D, has been considering the subject of leadership for years, often with frustration. She’s president of McWade Group, specializing in leadership, team and strategy development. She has led major divisions for three Fortune 200 firms, served as a U.S. Navy Commander and president of the World Affairs Council of Boston, authored the book, “This Moment: Reflections on Leading, Learning, Laughing and Living” and traveled the world. She’s also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. A speaker and blogger on leadership (www.jessicamcwade.com), columnist and photographer, Jessica looks at leadership from many angles in an effort to improve it.
