For Lisa Borders, leadership is about influence, not authority. 

"If you will allow people to take their own personal audit of their strengths, their weaknesses, where they can improve, and if you help them to develop, they will follow you almost anywhere," Lisa Borders, the WNBA president told students during a conversation with Dean Bill Boulding.

In these short videos, Borders discussed her experiences and approach to leadership as part of Fuqua's Distinguished Speakers Series. The full video of Borders' talk is also below.
