Are you inspired and enjoy learning from history to effect future change in leadership? If so, the Jefferson Leadership session will be a perfect fit for you. This workshop will focus on Jefferson’s leadership skills and political character through his executive roles as Governor of Virginia, Minister to France, Secretary of State, and two-term President of the United States. One of the most ambitious and successful leaders of the Founding generation, Jefferson deployed three fundamental leadership qualities throughout his forty-year career: mastery of the art of communication, decisive decision-making and strategic planning, and a long-term focus on shaping his “leadership legacy” for future generations. We will focus on specific illustrations of these traits—as critical for leaders today as they were in Jefferson’s time—using case studies from Jefferson’s political career and several of his own letters and documents. Through them, we will gain a better understanding of the nature of Jefferson’s success as well as his lessons for modern executives.
