First, Understand First, Act First: Leadership and Preparedness in the 21st Century

Russel L. Honoré, US Army (Ret.), was widely hailed by the media as the “Category 5 General” who saved the fabled city of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. With his commanding presence and charming Creole personality, he delivers a message essential to leaders operating in the “new normal” - a world where unpredictability and volatility are ever present. An authority of getting things done, he shares personal leadership principles from his 37-year career and the lessons gleaned from the front lines of the Katrina relief efforts. Demonstrating how to protect your family, business, finances, and future, Honoré prescribes preparedness as the key to preserving America for the next generation.
