Event Title Hardcore Leadership: 11 Master Lessons from My Airborne Ranger Uncle’s “Final Jump”   by Deborah L. Parker

All leaders have a mission! Building on her late favorite uncle’s legacy of service to country, family, and community, Deborah L. Parker provides lessons for leaders to forge ahead.
Laying out eleven powerful insights for those who find themselves in charge at work, community, or home with a timeless message from her uncle, a Vietnam Vet, Ranger Hall of Fame inductee, Chief Magistrate and Board of Supervisors Chair, lovingly known as Hardcore to his family, Deborah, also an army veteran, weaves in take-aways from her career and personal experiences in leadership development through her company The DPJ Training Group.
She has put together a thought-provoking book packed with memorable teaching anecdotes. Inspiring and informative in saluting her uncle’s commitment to a mission of leadership, she makes the case for us all in Hardcore’s words, to ‘press on.’ Available on Amazon as well as Deborah will have copies available for sale.
