Heroism is Born in Preparation
Tuesday, November 7

Phil Andrew, FBI Special Agent
Active listening, empathy, imagination and stress management are some of the skills needed to resolve conflict — from everyday disagreements to matters of life and death. FBI Special Agent Phil Andrew’s unique personal account of a sophisticated attack on a suburban Chicago community provides a powerful call to action to develop these critical skills…the habits of heroism.

Tara Carcillo, President/CEO, The Clearing, Inc.
In moments of crisis, employees often look to senior leaders for direction on how to respond. This direction must account for a wide range of needs including employee’s physical safety alongside their social and emotional security. Tara Carcillo is a practitioner and leader in the field of social complexity, she identifies the mental models and practical tactics successful leaders lean on when managing moments of crisis in an organization.
