A group of Wake Foresters gathered over dinner in New York, NY on February 8, 2019 to discuss Leadership & Character.

Overview and highlights of our Call to Conversation:

  • “People don’t remember what you say, but how you make them feel.” How do you influence people?
  • The way you do things matters. The how matters more than the accomplishment.
  • Taking responsibility and walking the talk.
  • Resilience through tragedy.
  • The importance of the everyday actions.
  • We asked ourselves: How does one teach empathy?
  • Building a habit of mindfulness brings a sense of calm/self awareness than can lead to empathy for others.
