Essential leadership competencies are essential to all firms to create competitive advantage

The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro St. Louis knows that by using a competency-based approach to leadership, organizations can better identify and develop their next generation of leaders.
As a business partner, the HCC STL Foundation through its Hispanic Leadership Institute promotes leadership competencies by offering a curriculum that emphasizes leadership skills and behaviors that contribute to superior performance.
