General Colin L. Powell USA (Ret.)

former Secretary of State

One of the most admired men in America, General Colin Powell has been a leader for most of his life, having led troops as a military leader, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and secretary of state. But Powell believes a leader is more than just his or her title. Drawing on examples garnered from experience as both a leader on the world stage and as eyewitness to leadership in action, Powell illustrates for audiences precisely what it takes to be a leader, providing strategies for “taking charge” during times of great change and great crises. Powell demonstrates how to remain focused, take responsibility and work towards improving processes, organizations and people.
