Creating More Powerful Outcomes in Business and Life

Known as the "Warrior Storyteller," Lt. Col. Mann masterfully engages audiences as he shares the powerful story of Operation Pineapple Express, a daring mission alongside fellow veterans and volunteers to not only honor a promise to his friend, but to save more than 1,000 Afghan allies amid the chaos of America's withdrawal from Afghanistan. He draws from his heart-pounding career of service to lead honest conversations about leading teams through the epic uncertainty and disconnection that organizations are facing today. His three-pronged approach to Rooftop Leadership — a grassroots leadership campaign rooted in interpersonal human skills — focuses on purpose, connection, and storytelling with one of his key messages being, "what is personal is universal."

Having mastered the art of creating connections in places where trust was absent and conflict was rampant, Lt. Col. Mann's Green Beret principles of leadership and rapport-building are a great fit for any organization aiming to succeed in competitive environments.
