We wrap the season with Dr. Condoleeza Rice
Dr. Rice is among the most distinguished diplomats, political scientists and professors alive today. Born in the 1950’s in Birmingham, Alabama. Dr. Rice shares with us her upbringing under two extraordinary parents, how an intense focus on figure skating snapped her out of being a procrastinator, how the great classical musical composers taught her sublime melodies through the piano, but it was a long winded Protestant preacher who taught her how to improvise the notes when playing.
We speak about her wide ranging career in service of multiple U.S. Presidents, and alongside many famous foreign heads of state. She shares with us how she trained her mind to be a decision maker amidst complex circumstances, and she values most in leaders. We even touch on what new kinds of National Service could look like for the next generation of Americans.
