Central Texas Leadership Series

Occasional Series Friday 11:30am, Sunday 3pm

Leaders are all around us, at all times and in every area of our lives. They motivate, they risk the first step. But what motivates a leader? In our Central Texas Leadership Series, KWBU invites local leaders to talk with people they know who guide and inspire -- to find out what makes them tick.
