The Milken Institute Global Conference and Military Leadership Circle offer an important opportunity to improve leadership skills by enabling me to learn about developing trends across multiple industries, hear from the brightest minds across these domains, and create contacts to think critically with and exchange ideas.
A holistic understanding of the world, specifically the interconnected industries that link a global society in the twenty-first century, is fundamental for strong leaders. Education, healthcare, the military, energy, and technology were some of the topics discussed during last years Milken Institute Global conference. At the conference, the leaders in respective industries discussed the newest developments, issues, and solutions. Knowledge across domains provides insight and opportunity to reference when faced with difficult challenges and further enables one to make better-informed choices about the future.
Creating relationships with others and engaging in intellectual discussions to seek solutions for real-world problems is my primary motivation to join the MLC. The Milken Institute and MLC will make me better informed and permit an opportunity to interact with professionals in multiple careers. I enjoy working with others and I seek the opportunity to learn practical approaches to accomplish goals. By working with the MLC, I can develop communication, organization, and critical thinking qualities that are required of a strong leader. Additionally, I can fuse best practices from members in diverse career fields to interchange concepts and develop creative solutions to approach any leadership challenge I may face.
