2017 Spring Conference Includes the Following:
4-3-2-1 Leadership
Major General (Retired) Vincent “Vinny” Boles
Leaders today don’t require “help” that sounds good in a PowerPoint presentation and fades under the heat and pressure of reality. They need tools that hold up when the stakes are high so that they can be better practitioners of their leadership craft. Using the 33 years of experience in leading America’s sons and daughters and providing the right support in the toughest conditions, Major General Boles delivers to your team 10 time and battle tested tools that they can begin using right now to ensure their “best gets better.”
