Leading Every Day (LED) Program to feature Major General USAF (RET) John Barry

Now that fall has arrived, we are pleased to invite you to join us for this year's LED Initiative at the NAPT Summit in Grand Rapids, Mich., on Saturday, Oct. 19.

Helping us celebrate our 7th year of LED will be an outstanding speaker and LED mentor for the day, John Barry, U.S. Major General USAF (RET). Barry is a former Superintendent of Aurora Public Schools where he served for seven years. Before coming back to Colorado, he was in the Air Force for over 30 years as a combat veteran, fighter pilot/USAF "Top Gun" graduate and Military Assistant to the Secretary of Defense. He retired in 2004 as a "2 Star", Major General, and he served his last tour on active duty as Board Member and Executive Director for the Space Shuttle Columbia Accident Investigation.

"In every organization I have been a part of," asserts Barry, "I know that everyone wants and needs to understand the big picture in order to be engaged and supportive. The first step is to make everyone — the Board of Education, students, staff, parents and the community — believe that real change is possible and to unite around a common vision and mission." Barry has been an integral part of honing in on school safety and security, has spoken on the aftermath of both the Challenger disaster and the Aurora, Colo., shootings and will provide insight on issues such as:
  • Lessons learned from complex organizations outside of education that can be applied to our Transportation arena
  • Understanding that complex organizations can sometimes fail in complex ways, requiring complex solutions
  • Discussing considerations for organizational rhythm, structure and communication
  • Safety and Security and how we as leaders are affected in what we do daily
In addition to the management lessons and expertise provided by John Barry, the group will be led by our team of LED Instructors who will cover topics such as accountability and ownership as well as motivation for the masses.

We encourage anyone interested in becoming a LEADER in this industry to attend this year's LED program. It is a unique opportunity to sharpen your skills under the tutelage of a uniquely qualified mentor. This year's LED program and the NAPT Summit is sure to be an eye opening experience and one you won't want to miss!
