December Dinner Meeting 2019
Understanding Leadership
Lieutenant-Colonel (retired) Angelo N. Caravaggio
OMM, CD, Ph. D.


Leadership development is a $366 billion global industry with $166 billion spent annually in the USA alone, and yet ineffective leadership remains the No. 1 organizational issue facing organizations around the world.  In 2015, Deloitte termed leadership the “perennial issue in business”—a challenge that never seems to go away.  The research also reveals that a toxic workplace culture remains a central problem in many organizations.

This presentation will provide a new framework for understanding leadership and will focus on three main themes;

  • understanding the leadership problem including dispelling several leadership myths;
  • understanding the leadership spectrum from effective leadership to toxic leadership including the causes and cures of ineffective and toxic leadership; and
  • examining the practical “truths” about leadership that all leaders need to understand in order to be effective leaders.
