Noel Tichy, The Proponent That Great Leaders Are Teachers

May 17, 2016 1 Min Read

Noel Tichy is an American management consultant, author and educator, as well as a professor of management and organisations of University of Michigan. He is known for his contribution towards General Electric’s worldwide development as he led transformational leadership into action-based learning in the organisation.
