MAY 31 - JUNE 2, 2017

MAKE YOUR LIFE AND LEADERSHIP COUNT

This three-day conference will offer key insights into an enduring challenge: How do we develop the capacity to respond in timely, principled ways to the multifaceted challenges and opportunities of effective leadership?

Spend a Day with David Brooks, the New York Times columnist and author of the best-selling book “The Road to Character.” One of America’s most prominent political and social commentators, he goes beyond the headlines to seek deeper meaning in life, suggesting that selflessness leads to greater success.

Douglas McKenna, CEO and executive director of the Center for Organizational Leadership, presents his C4 Leadership Framework, the interacting dynamics of four key principles: composure, conviction, connection and courage. He teaches practical skills for developing these essential qualities.

Bestselling author Ronald C. White shares historical insights from Abraham Lincoln to Martin Luther King Jr., examining leaders who made an enduring impact by putting principles ahead of personal gain. He explains how leaders can apply these lessons today to their own organizations.

Step outside your daily routine, away from the rapid pace of life, and do some serious work on leadership at this conference.
