June 5th – Breakfast with Lee Ellis
A POW’s Lessons in Authentic Communication & Leadership
How did American Military leaders in the brutal POW camps of North Vietnam inspire their followers for six, seven, or eight years to remain committed to the mission, resist a cruel enemy, and return home with honor? What leadership principles engendered such extreme devotion, perseverance, and teamwork?
Lee Ellis, a Retired U.S. Air Force Colonel, candidly talks about his five and a half years of captivity and the fourteen key leadership principles learned during his time at the Hanoi Hilton. As a successful executive coach and corporate consultant, he helps leaders of Fortune 500 companies, healthcare executives, small business owners, and entrepreneurs utilize these same pressure-tested principles to increase their personal and organizational success.
