On Monday, November 12, in commemoration of Veterans Day, Thayer Leader Development Group once again partnered with Nasdaq to recognize public and private companies that lead the nation in supporting active duty military members, veterans, and their families. In honor of the occasion, TLDG staff member and U.S. Marine Corps veteran Becky Saxe sang the National Anthem and Lieutenant General Darryl Williams, 60th Superintendent of the United States Military Academy, rang the Opening Bell at Nasdaq MarketSite.
The day also included a Leadership Roundtable, moderated by Editor and Chief Content Officer of Chief Executive Group Dan Bigman, on veteran talent, leadership and how today’s executives can develop the next generation of America's business leaders. The roundtable featured Craig Newmark, Founder of craigstlist and Board Member of VetsinTech. Representatives from more than 50 companies participated in the entire Veterans Day event.

"Most people spend 90% of their time on tasks and 10% on leadership. Start spending 50% of your time on leadership and you will notice that others will pick up the slack on the tasks."
