You will be led through a path of how national security and the lessons learned are applicable to all business leaders.  Learn about the necessity to project optimism and the realization that leaders and followers are engaged in an emotional relationship.  Find out how important it is for the calendar to reflect your priorities, and how someone’s failure to plan does not make it a crisis for others.  This session will focus on how to be an effective innovator within your organization; how to be a change agent; and how to communicate your ideas to leadership.
