Leading Authorities sponsored the Marriott Association’s Masters event this May with speaker Eric Greitens. Greitens, founder of The Mission Continues, is a humanitarian and Navy SEAL lieutenant commander who draws on his experience abroad to empower wounded veterans to become leaders at home. Recognized as an award-winning author, Greitens’ first book, Strength and Compassion, depicts the lives of war-affected children through photographs and essays. His latest work, The Heart and the Fist, provides accounts of his humanitarian efforts, service with the Navy, and work with disabled veterans in an analysis that draws attention to the factors that drive people towards success during challenging times.
In this keynote, Greitens engaged his audience with personal stories from his travels to illustrate aspects of leadership, team building, overcoming adversity, and the power of service. He discussed the challenges faced by the next generation of American leaders and what is required for inspirational and effective leadership over the course of the next decade.
The event took place Thursday, May 19th at the Harbor Beach Marriott Resort & Spa in Ft. Lauderdale, FL.
