How are you putting yourself forward as a leader? How are you wired? When others look for a reason to quit, do you find a reason to keep going? Take a look at this motivational video.

In this next video, Cheryl Bachelder, CEO of AFC Enterprises, Inc., discusses the importance of deciding how you put yourself forth as a leader. Cheryl has more than 30 years of experience in brand building, operations and management at companies like KFC, Domino's Pizza, RJR Nabisco and The Procter & Gamble Company.
