A group of Wake Foresters gathered over dinner in Charlotte, NC on August 28, 2018 to discuss Leadership & Character.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

We began our conversation by each sharing an example of a time we saw character in action. Whether it was a family member, public figure, teacher, community leader, or even a complete stranger, we each shared how these moments influenced our lives and have helped to build our own character.

A few recurring themes from our evening included:

  • Being truthful and steadfast in the face of criticism, even if it means going against the populous
  • Making others feel valued and appreciated
  • How incredible leadership and can be found in ordinary, everyday happenings
  • Selflessness, gratitude, forgiveness, and community
  • The importance of taking time to reflect on meaningful moments
