West Point, New York, January 10, 2018 — Chief Executive Group, the leading community for American business leaders, announced this morning a new partnership with Thayer Leader Development Group at West Point, the premier global expert in values-based leader development.
Under the agreement, CEG and TLDG will create and distribute content and co-host events with the goal of improving the performance and leadership abilities of America’s top business leaders, utilizing the wisdom, experience and training of some of the U.S. Army’s most experienced and effective former officers.
“For more than 200 years, The U.S. Military Academy at West Point has been one of America’s true crown jewels, furnishing the nation with generations of top-level leadership,” said Marshall Cooper, CEO of Chief Executive Group. “Passing on the lessons developed there is the cornerstone of TLDG’s mission, and that aligns perfectly with the work of Chief Executive Group. It’s a natural fit and we couldn’t be more excited.”
"There’s power in the art of effective communication. A leader must not only develop an easily understood vision, but he has to communicate it to his team in a way that is understandable to all."
