General Martin Dempsey is the nation's highest ranking military officer. As Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, he advises the President, Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Council. As you might imagine, he's learned a lot about leadership over the years.
General Dempsey shared those lessons as a keynote speaker in the 2013 Fuqua/Coach K Leadership Summit at Duke University's Fuqua School of Business. The event is hosted  by the Fuqua/Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics (COLE) and brings together top leaders to collaborate about the challenges of leadership in a fast paced and ever changing environment.
While on campus, General Dempsey discussed leadership qualities in a Fuqua Q and A video. Watch it here.
