Above and Beyond: JFK and the Florida U-2 pilots During the Cuban Missile Crisis with  Michael Tougias

This unique presentation entertains with the dramatic chronicling of the Cuban Missile Crisis (with slides) while providing useful analysis of JFK’s process of tackling major decisions in practical ways that others can learn from and adopt. It’s an especially timely topic today with current tensions with North Korea and Russia.

Tougias, best-known for his seven award-winning books examining extraordinary survivors and rescuers, is a sought-after speaker on leadership and crisis management. The author uses the same storytelling skills that landed him on the New York Times bestseller list to both engage and inspire his audience.

 Tuesday, March 10, 2020 Impactful Leadership with Rick Kaiser

For the duration of his distinguished career, Master Chief Rick Kaiser has been stationed around the world. Serving on SEAL Team TWO for five years, Kaiser specialized in winter warfare, combat diving, and sniping before being selected for duty at SEAL Team SIX. He served at SEAL Team SIX for twenty-seven years, acting as sniper, explosives expert, Lead Training Chief, sniper team leader, and Deputy Operations Officer. He received the Silver Star Medal for Valor during the Battle of Mogadishu (Black Hawk Down) in 1993. 
 
The common theme throughout Rick's time in military service–and what he attributes as the key to any successful mission–is impactful leadership. Mr. Kaiser applies leadership lessons learned during his days in uniform to his current position in the civilian world as the Executive Director of the National Navy SEAL Museum in Fort Pierce.
