Book Signing!

Captain Chesley "Sully" Sullenberger

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012, 7pm @ Book Revue
Pilot and Author Captain Sully Sullenberger will speak and sign his new book, Making a Difference: Stories of Vision and Courage From America's Leaders.

“I’ve always felt that one of the most underrated aspects of leadership is the ability to create a shared sense of responsibility for the outcome: to inspire those around you to make tomorrow better than today, to constantly strive for excellence and to refuse to accept anything that’s barely adequate.”

Captain Sully has embarked on a personal quest to meet with distinguished Americans—young and old, famous and less well known—from fields as diverse as space exploration, business, government, education, sports, finance, medicine and the military. These are vastly different individuals with varied styles of leadership but all embody the credo of “leadership by example.” Sullenberger discusses with these leaders what it takes to achieve genuine leadership—a clear set of values, intense preparation, lifelong learning, making one’s actions match one’s words, creating a culture of trust, and caring for those one leads.
