Adaptive Leadership in Anxious Times


Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Rick Lynch – He is formerly the commanding officer of Fort Hood and an active member of Immanuel, Killeen. He is the author of two books Adapt or Die: Leadership Principles of an American General and Work Hard Pray Hard: The Power of Faith in Action. As a speaker, he is in demand across the world for the unique blending of his experiences, faith, and knowledge of the principles of adaptive leadership. He will speak particularly on the challenges of leading adaptively in times of anxiety and change.
