21: An Engineers Strategy to Intrapreneurship
Feb 14, 2021 Episode 21

How would a leader worth following (who happens to be an engineer!) engineer a way forward during these shifting times to lead our purpose in work and life?

The uncertainty with today's environment has left many of us wondering what the future holds and what more will continue to change.

What hasn't changed and will never change is our need for connection and purpose that is engaged, challenged, and evolved through a shared value system integrated within our work and life.


The present moment provides us an opportunity as purpose-driven organizations and conscious professionals to partner together and explores our leadership, our impact, and our career story moving forward. 

To better understand the realities and possibilities of this imperfect and organic journey, we've invited our guest expert, Andre Thornton, who is no stranger to what it takes to lead beyond the title.

Andre has lived his life as an example of how someone can pursue their purpose in work and life. 

As a young professional, he strategically moved up in his field, ultimately earning the position of Engineering Director at Lockheed Martin. His practical business experiences provide invaluable insights for his clients, having performed on some of the most advanced aircraft programs and technologies in the world. 

While an Innovator at Lockheed Martin, he delivered results ranging from implementing a new Computer-Aided Design technology that saved $2.7M to capturing over $1B of new business. These results are rooted in the competencies that advanced his career and are now transferred to others through Whitman Consulting's leadership development services.

Today,  Andre will help us explore strategies he's used as an engineer to tackle life when a shift happens, and we're called to lead.
