A conversation on leadership and foreign policy

February 19, 2014

The focus of this Ford Policy Union will be on leadership and on specific examples from Ambassador Negroponte's experience. What makes a good leader and how do leaders make decisions? How do leaders handle dissent and divergent views? What lessons have we learned from successes and failures in national security and foreign policy? Has traditional American diplomacy been sidelined because of dominance by our military in post-Cold War conflict and in counter-terrorism since 9/11? The Ford School's Professor of International Policy and Practice, Ambassador (ret) Melvyn Levitsky will conduct the discussion with Ambassador Negroponte and moderate a question and answer session with the audience.
