A group of Wake Foresters gathered over dinner in Atlanta, GA on February 12, 2019 to discuss Leadership & Character.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

  • We told stories of loved ones, the wrongfully convicted, notable leaders, athletes, and those who chose to do what was right when no one was looking.
  • We talked at length about giving and taking and how great leadership requires both.
  • Words used to describe character in our conversation included resilience, grace, thoughtfulness, selflessness, mentors, and bravery.
  • We agreed on the value of asking how someone is doing, looking them in the eye, and really meaning it!
  • We talked about well-being and balance in life as a sign of character.
