Locked on Leadership with Will Duke

Will Duke is a retired U.S. Navy officer who now serves as the Director of Learning and Development for a major consulting firm where he has designed leader development programs for Fortune 500 corporations and consulted with teams across the full spectrum of industries.

Will is a four-time book author and has recently released a book entitled: “Locked on TEAMS”- a leader’s guide to high-performing TEAM behavior. In this conversation, Will and I discuss how (in general) people do not change, but rather the context does. Leading in today’s VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity) “context” makes the art and science of leading even more important than ever. Especially understanding how to lead in a TEAM setting will be crucial for leaders of the future.
