Cultivating Millennials to be Authentic Leaders

While teaching students to ride a bike from Austin to Anchorage may seem the obvious lesson, it's the journey they endure that provides the deepest education. From "hiring" to "firing", "balancing a budget" to "conflict resolution", to "motivation" and "direction", these students become authentic leaders and sought-after recruits at the University of Texas. Hear from the founder and others that completed this journey and later went on to be a corporate leader and Student Body President.
