Community invited to attend breakfast leadership series at Beaver

MONACA, Pa. — Effective leadership requires common sense, a calm head, logical thinking and courage.

Jack Carroll, the founder of Battle Ready Leadership, believes lessons on all of these attributes can be learned from examining the Battle of Gettysburg. Carroll is a longtime CEO who has worked with an array of businesses, from startups to Fortune 500 companies.

Penn State Beaver Continuing Education will offer a breakfast leadership series featuring Carroll’s expertise and techniques. The series begins on Feb. 14 and runs  from 7:30 to 9 a.m. every Wednesday through March 21 in the Student Union Building Special Events Room. The cost is $35 per session or $200 for the entire series. A continental breakfast is included in the cost.
