Applying the Leader’s Code to Silicon Valley
Drawing on the leadership he learned on the front lines, decorated military officer and Fortune 500 executive Donovan Campbell moderates a panel on how the training model of the United States military can serve as a foundation for great leadership in business and beyond. Alongside Ustream Co-Founder and CEO Brad Hunstable and entrepreneur and author Chris Guillebeau of The $100 Start-Up, the discussion will focus on character as the most important quality in a leader and will explore how six key attributes--humility, excellence, kindness, discipline, courage, and wisdom—can be utilized by entrepreneurs and those who are trying to carve out their own niches in the business world.
