February is Peace and Conflict Resolution Month
Peace and Conflict Resolution is Rotary's theme for February. Chris Hove, a former military commander and currently the President & CEO of Nebraska Bank of Commerce, shared his insights on leadership and trust as they relate to conflict and resolution. Chris believes that "fighting and protecting follow the same continuum as peace and resolution and you can’t get to one without understanding the other". Chris shared his four important leadership lessons at his speech at Rotary and he mentioned several amazing leaders at Rotary 14. Read Chris' speech, click here.
