Reinvent Yourself as a Leader - Overcoming Common Leadership Stalls

7:30am - 9am, Tower Club


In this presentation, John Hillen explores the common “stalls” that many successful leaders paradoxically encounter during times of growth or success. From failing to create an organizational story that delivers meaning and purpose (purpose stall), to struggling to get a team of high performers to work as a team (teamwork stall), to neglecting outside stakeholders (stakeholder stall), Hillen and Nevins identify the seven circumstances where leaders find themselves suddenly out of their depth.


Dr. John Hillen 

John F. Hillen, DPhil, is a leadership and strategy professor in the School of Business at George Mason University, a consultant, and a director for many companies. His views on leadership draw from his experiences as a CEO of public and private companies, a board chair and director, a US Assistant Secretary of State under President George W. Bush, and a former US Army officer and decorated combat leader. He holds degrees from Duke and King’s College London, received his MBA at Cornell and his doctorate from Oxford. A Washington Technology columnist, he writes regularly on leadership and strategy, both of which he teaches in George Mason’s MBA program. Recently recognized as one of the one hundred most influential business leaders in the Washington DC area, Hillen is a winner of a number of prestigious leadership awards in the military and business and the author or editor of several books on international security.



Registration fee: $59 and includes the presentation, a gourmet Tower Club breakfast, coffee, and time for executive networking.
