Ret. General Russel Honoré Addresses CLDA
The keynote speaker at CLDA's 2013 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Ret. Gen. Russel Honoré is a no-nonsense leader on a mission to help the U.S. recapture the spirit that made it great. He shares with audiences his deeply-held principles for leading in the 21st century, where unpredictability and volatility -- from Wall Street, to Main Street, to what he calls "Railroad Street" -- are ever present. Leaders from all fields and those who aspire to be will benefit from his insights on how the U.S. can be more economically resilient, why today's leaders should invest in the success of their subordinates, why you should never allow yourself to shrink from acting out of fear of criticism, and finally, why we should save our best leadership for at home.
