Leadership - That Tool That Lies Between “Juggling” and “Magic”

“Juggling” is a verb defined by the Merriam dictionary as: “To keep several objects in motion in the air at the same time by repeatedly throwing and catching them” Merriam defines “magic” as a noun, specifically: “a power that allows people to do ...

“Juggling” is a verb defined by the Merriam dictionary as: “To keep several objects in motion in the air at the same time by repeatedly throwing and catching them”

Merriam defines “magic” as a noun, specifically: “a power that allows people to do impossible things by saying special words or performing special actions”

“Leadership” is that topic that, alphabetically, finds itself between these two, and often is confused with these two. As evidenced by these questions and replies often asked of and heard from leaders: “What are you doing? I’m just keeping balls in the air” or; “how did we make that happen? Magic”

Bringing his 40 years of military, business expertise and presentations to groups around the globe ranging from 40 to 4,000; Major General Vincent “Vinny” Boles provides a lens to view your (and your teams) leadership practices, processes and actions along with a structure to ensure they are consciously and proactively providing the maximum value added to any organization’s most precious resource it’s human capital

About Keynote Speaker Major Gen. Vincent (Vinny) Boles, USA (Ret.)

Six weeks before the attacks of September 11th, 2001, Vinny Boles was a newly selected one-star General. He reported to take command of a contingency command, one that would be needed by the nation if “the worst thing happened.” On September 11th, it did happen and Vinny and his team went from planning to execution in an ever-fluid environment. Across five continents and over eight years of this persistent conflict, as a combat commander, coach, trainer, leader and world-class logistician, he has built teams that have consistently gotten the right item to the right place at the right time under the tremendous pressures of war.

Today, a recently retired Army Major General, Vinny will help your organization develop their leadership competency, bringing his time-tested leadership applications to your team. With examples of what worked, what didn’t work and why and with anecdotes from the front lines of combat and the halls of the Pentagon, every person on your team will get tools they can apply right away to ensure that their “best gets better.” They will be focused, energized and even more committed to own and tackle the toughest missions together, every day. Vinny is the author of 4-3-2-1 Leadership: What America’s Sons and Daughters Taught Me on the Road from 2nd Lieutenant to 2 Star General.
