As CEOs we are chiefly responsible for protecting the mission of our organizations. This is a story of leading an organization through the zone of insolvency, honoring fiduciary responsibilities, and leading our organizations forward after major challenges.


• Fighting your organization’s demons.
• Making financial decisions during the zone of insolvency.
• Rebuilding public trust and confidence as the Keeper of the Dream
