Lead Brave, Lead Strong, Lead True

Former Marine Officer and current professor, Dr. Kate Hendricks Thomas shares valuable lessons from her journey into the world of leading in the mostly male-dominated U.S. Marine Corps environment.

Watch for three themes in this show:

  • Challenges facing new leaders.
