Steve Adulate Moderates Discussion On Leadership

Rutherford, NJ — Felician University School of Business recently held its seventh annual Business Symposium. The subject of the event was “Lessons in Leadership,” inspired by the new book of the same name by moderator and featured speaker, Steve Adubato, PhD, best-selling author, award-winning TV host, leadership trainer and communications coach. He was joined by panelists Kevin Cummings, CEO, Investors Bank; Bill Heller, SVP and general counsel, NY Giants; and Dr. Anne Prisco, president, Felician University.

“I am not a scholar of leadership,” said Steve Adubato. “I am a practitioner of leadership. At Felician, I believe that the teaching of leadership is grounded in practicality.”

This informative session discussed many aspects of leadership, and the panel provided practical examples of:  how to deal with success and failure, the blame game, the impact of technology, how to engage millennials, and the importance of communications, to name just a few.

The symposium was meant to enhance the classroom experience by providing direct exposure to leaders of the business community. “Felician students gained valuable lessons and inspiration as they listened to stories about real-life leadership challenges and solutions,” said Bob Evans, dean of the Felician School of Business. “The symposium provided our students with practical tips and tools as they prepare to join the workforce and become the leaders of tomorrow.”
