  • How to Lead and Succeed When it Matters Most

    Jake Wood, Co-founder and President of Team Rubicon, and author of Take Command
    We live in uncertain times and are searching for firm ground. We all want to be the people who remain steady even as others lose their footing. One day at least some of us will be confronted with a situation in which the stakes are high, the risks considerable, and the options less than ideal. It might be a key business decision, a mistake we made in the past or an upset customer wanting quick answers to tough questions. Whatever the issue is, being equipped to face uncertainty is always the preferred course of action. Drawing from his experience in the military, with Team Rubicon, and his debut book, Take Command, Jake Wood provides the framework to thrive in high-stakes situations. This talk outlines the how, when, and why of resolute, lead-from-the-front leadership, offering a set of principles that one can draw upon in any situation
