Leadership and teamwork: Lessons from the 1936 U.S. Olympic Crew from UW
Bruce's keynote address will explore the story told in the New York Times bestselling book, The Boys in the Boat. Like the book, Bruce will share this moving story of challenge, hope, and overcoming all odds through ethical leadership and hard work. Together we’ll draw lessons in leadership from this inspiring tale of how modeling, motivating, encouraging, and enabling propelled one scrappy team of rowers out of the University of Washington and to Olympic Gold during Hitler’s Berlin rule.
