Interview with Clifton Taulbert

A discussion between the Chair Academy Executive Director Rose Marie Sloan and Clifton L. Taulbert, global speaker, author, entrepreneur, and businessman.

Clifton L. Taulbert, perhaps best known throughout the post-secondary landscape as the author of Eight Habits of the Heart, began learning his own leadership lessons as a child in the Mississippi Delta. Throughout his life his lessons have been many and varied but they were all rooted in the value of community. The connection between individuals, the value inherent in each person, and the recognition that “we are better together” serve as overarching themes in his writing, speaking, and business endeavors.

Here, he shares with us some of his most important and lasting lessons, framed in the present climate of post-secondary education, technology, community, and leadership.
