The New Face of Leadership

The cover story of the March 22, 2010 issue of FORTUNE Magazine is titled “Meet The New Face of Leadership.”  It details why companies like Wal-Mart, PepsiCo, and GE are recruiting the military’s elite.  These companies see  tremendous value in bringing in world-class leadership talent from the ranks of junior military officers who have recently led soldiers, sailors, Marines, and airmen.

We are very fortunate at Foxwood Associates to have just such an individual on our team who serves as an adjunct advisor in our organizational development and leadership development practices.
