Scenario

Cargo United Corporation has recently decided that a culture change is necessary in the organization. They hope this change will improve leadership after years of ineffective leadership techniques that have impacted employee morale and organizational effectiveness. As part of the restructure, Cargo United Corporation wants to try to gain a competitive advantage through the creation of a unique leadership brand by using specific leadership competencies.
