Add to Calendar 2021-03-11 18:30:00 2021-03-11 20:00:00 America/Chicago Lincoln on Leadership Mr. Lincoln discusses 16 principles which characterized his leadership and gives examples of how he exhibited these during his life and career. Off-Site

Mr. Lincoln discusses 16 principles which characterized his leadership and gives examples of how he exhibited these during his life and career.

Mr. Lincoln discusses his leadership values and style by sharing “16 precedents from the 16th
President”, that is, 16 ways in which he strove to lead our nation and our people in his day, and in
particular during his Presidency. These include knowing your principles and sticking to them;
changing with the times; recruiting a great team; soliciting and considering a diversity of opinions;
communicating effectively; acknowledging mistakes and learning from them; being guided by
empathy; and putting the cause before personal ambitions; plus eight more! For each of the 16
precedents, or principles, he provides one or more examples from his own life.

Mr. Lincoln is portrayed by Kevin Wood, a professional Lincoln presenter who bears a remarkable
resemblance to “the Great Emancipator” and who is extremely knowledgeable about his life and times.
Mr. Wood has been portraying Mr. Lincoln since the year 2000, and on a professional basis since
2015. He has made 1,200 appearances in 26 states plus Washington DC and two foreign countries:
Canada and Spain. Mr. Wood also writes a blog – “Loath to Close… Still!” – which encourages others
to reflect upon and learn from President Lincoln’s life and legacy. For more information, visit
