Leadership Rochester: Opening the City’s Eyes

Nov 27, 2015

Rochester native Bob Duffy has been a busy and versatile man over his career, going from Rochester police chief and mayor, to lieutenant governor of New York state, and now head of the Rochester Business Alliance. Before all of that, however, Duffy was a graduate of Leadership Rochester, a program that gave him some useful perspective.

We're focusing on integrity and values-based leadership, which might sound nebulous at first glance. But a team of local business and retired military leaders is concerned about the lack of values-based leadership just about everywhere: the board room, the church, the ballpark, the political arena. How to change that? They'll explain their approach. Our guests:

  • Carin Cole, assistant dean of the Simon School at the University of Rochester
  • John Batiste, retired U.S. Army Major General and co-founder of Level Five Associates
  • Robert Mixon, retired U.S. Army Major General and co-founder of Level Five Associates
