Do you want to learn more about leadership?  Do you want to be an effective leader?  Well, then Brewing Leadership is for you! 

The purpose of Brewing Leadership is to discuss leadership as a whole pertaining to the military and entrepreneurship.  Brewing Leadership will be an informal open discussion over drinks to discuss leadership from various perspectives.  As a leader can be any rank, title, gender or position, we want to foster an open environment to discuss what leadership means to everyone at different levels in order to gain a diverse perspective and understanding about what leadership is and what leaders do in order to be effective. 

As we focus on various topics, questions, examples, tools and theories on leadership our mission is to create a culture of leadership development through perspective learning.  Our vision is to grow as leaders and followers by learning from the values, experience and knowledge of the people around us.
Recommended number is 6-12 people each group.  If number exceeds 12, split in half.   

Locations may change in future so keep an eye out.  There is no obligation to remain at each session.  You are free to come and go as your schedule allows.  We can be a great community of leaders and every community needs effective leaders.  Let’s bring leadership to the table and talk about it over drinks.
