Examine timeless principles of leadership

The habits and personal traits that define great leaders are identifiable, adaptable and adoptable. Your chosen profession puts you in a position where you are called to lead: in your firm, in the community, locally, regionally or nationally. This innovative course gives you specific, practical guidance on steps you can take to be more than "the person in charge;” you will be the leader!

Understand how Lincoln's personal traits apply to you

Bud Krogh has studied the remarkable personal traits that allowed Abraham Lincoln, a squeaky voiced lawyer from the wilds of Illinois, to shepherd a nation through its most troubled times. With Lincoln as a guide, Krogh explores basic leadership principles and draws parallels to contemporary life in a leadership role.

Explore the characteristics that contemporary lawyer/leaders have applied to problems

Krogh then expands the discussion to include recent and current lawyer/leaders. He examines their common (and uncommon) characteristics and explains how their effective patterns are easily adopted into your personal leadership style. What they do, you can do.

"Wild Card” Credits

Don't think you need three ethics credits? Ethics credits are "wild card” credits that can be applied either as an ethics credit or generally toward your overall 12-credit CLE requirement.

Special Bonus - $150 discount

If you also attend "Integrity: Good People, Bad Choices & Life Lessons from the White House,” also taught by Bud Krogh, being held in the afternoon at all locations, take $150 off the combined tuition of both programs.

About our presenter

In 1971, Egil "Bud” Krogh, a 31-year-old White House deputy counsel, was tasked with finding and stopping security leaks and became head of the Special Investigations Unit; Krogh and associates familiarly became known as the "White House Plumbers.” He authorized the burglary of Dr. Lewis Fielding's office in an attempt to discredit Daniel Ellsberg, who released his Pentagon Papers without authorization. Krogh says it was his loyalty to the presidency and his belief that national security was at stake that led him to authorize the break in and lie to cover it up. In 1973, before any other involved parties admitted wrongdoing, Krogh spoke up. Of the various White House-based conspirators, Krogh alone pled guilty and refused to trade inside information for a reduced sentence. He was disbarred and went to prison. In 1980, Krogh successfully petitioned to be readmitted to the bar and has been in practice since.
In January 2009, Krogh joined the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress as a senior fellow on leadership, ethics and integrity. Part of the Center's mission is to promote "civility, character and inclusive public leadership.” Krogh will contribute to the ethics training initiative for political appointees and to the National Consortium for Character-Based Leadership, which focuses on ethics and leadership for young people.
