Bob Fricke, VMI Class of 1978, was one of our 2019 leadership conference breakout speakers.
Alumni speakers provided our audience with personal examples where individuals had to lead through or despite the disruption, addressing our theme.
In this episode, Fricke shared his definition of leadership and how that remained fairly consistent throughout his life, the powerful lessons he learned as a young lieutenant, and how that's carried over into a new teaching career. Fricke said that teaching has tested his leadership more than any other job he's had from the military, FBI, and government contracting. Hear more of Fricke's insights and advice to new cadets or even new graduates!
