About this event

Overview: A conversation between Wall Street Journal sports columnist, Jason Gay and Sam Walker, the author of The Captain Class, a study of the greatest teams in sports history.

What You'll Take Away: Great leadership isn't a matter of skill and charisma. It's about behavior. The greatest captains in sports history had seven common traits but they're not the ones you'd expect. Walker's research, which took a decade to complete, will give you a new perspective on the nature of leadership that applies to teams in many fields.

Why It Matters: We're picking the wrong leaders, because we don't understand what successful leaders really do. In sports, business, politics and other fields, we often mistake positive leadership qualities for negative ones and end up overlooking the best candidates.
