Leadership Plus: Professionals Committed to Character

"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic.

But will they keep it?

Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom?

Material abundance without character is the path of destruction."
— Thomas Jefferson

The Leadership Plus master level class at Fairleigh Dickinson University met on Saturday, February 7, 2009 for discussion on my presentation titled Reawakening the Heart of America: Leadership, Vigilance, Collaboration.


  • Why Are We Here?
    • Education: Essential to the Preservation of Liberty
    • Foundations of Leadership
  • Contemporary Concerns
    • Crisis of Leadership
    • Culture of Violence
    • Shattered Communities
    • Filling the Void
  • The ALTRUISM FactorTM
  • Principles of Visionary Leadership
  • Call to Action
  • American Military Tribute
  • Conclusion

Participants shared insights on character, violence prevention and leadership that might serve as a launching pad for transforming our nation through our schools, workplaces and communities.

This highly energetic group—under the guidance of Dr. Joseph A. Devine—represents the best of the future of America and is committed to their ongoing education and professional development. Aside from my admiration for each of these professionals, I am humbled that my newest book, Listen To Their Cries, is required reading for the class.
