About the Presentation

The new Fairfax Local Community (Dunn Loring) will launch Wednesday, April 26 at 11:30 am at the KGS offices near the Dunn Loring metro station. Susan Schwartz will be the guest speaker discussing the topic, “Military Generals, Mindfulness, and Emotional Intelligence”. Parking available.

For many years, business schools have looked toward the military and its long leadership legacy to understand successful leadership methods. Senior level officers have always needed to be adept at managing shifting trends. In fact, a current military leadership program promises to foster agile and adaptive officers who can think critically and creatively. How have our military leaders leveraged these to be able leverage non-tangible attributes? This session takes a practical look at successful, and not so successful, U.S. military general behaviors from WWII to the present. The discussion centers around four key leadership attributes as take-away lessons and how they can be used by project managers today to lead their teams to success.
