Women's Leadership Conference - Springfield
What:Leaders need to understand their business and their people. Discover how becoming a more empathetic leader builds strong teams and relationships in the workplace and at home. Empathy creates connection between socio-economic, ethnic and geographic lines. Empathy allows us to influence, inspire and help people achieve their dreams and goals. It allows us to connect with others in real and meaningful ways, which makes us happier and more effective at work and in life. The business of people is empowered by empathy.

At our 22nd annual Women’s Leadership Conference we will explore empathy and its use in our daily lives, how it empowers us individually and as a team, and how it can help each of us to become better, stronger, and more compassionate leaders.

The Thunderbirds are the air demonstration squadron of the U.S. Air Force (USAF), based at Nellis AFB in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Thunderbirds have the privilege and responsibility to perform for people all around the world, displaying the pride, precision and professionalism of American Airmen. In every hour-long demonstration, the team combines years of training and experience with an attitude of excellence to showcase what the Air Force is all about.

The sharply choreographed, drill-style ground ceremony kicks off the demonstration by showcasing the attention to detail and esprit de corps that defines our enlisted members. As the jets take to the skies and fly only a few feet from wingtip to wingtip, the crowd gets a glimpse of the awesome skills and capabilities that all fighter pilots must possess. The solo pilots integrate their own loud and proud routine, exhibiting some of the maximum capabilities of the F-16 Fighting Falcon.

There are many other performers as well! Check out their website for more details.
