Steering Your Ship Through Rough Waters: Lessons on Leadership from Captain Phillips


Captain Phillips not only shares his compelling story—presented in his warm, highly personal style, but as a “floating CEO” in charge of the day-to-day operations of a multi-million dollar ship and the crew he managed, he also draws lessons from those dramatic events that can help your organization survive and thrive, even in these times when hope and support seem to be in very short supply. He will discuss the vital importance of leadership and teamwork, combined with a belief in the power and potential of yourself and your team, as seen through the eyes of an unassuming hero who conquered an extraordinary challenge.
