General Takes CEOs-in-Training
Through Leadership Drill

Aspiring CEOs will get top-level training in leading the troops from Army Brig. Gen. Kenneth Bergquist on Thursday, April 5 at California State University, Sacramento.

Bergquist, a former CIA operative and president of the newly created Joint Special Operations University in Hurlburt Field, Fla., will address participants in the University's "Leadership for the New Millennium" course at 1 p.m. at the Steven Lee Yamshon Alumni Center Bergquist, who leads an effort to help the individual special operations units of the Air Force, Army and Navy work together more effectively, will talk on "Achieving Focus."

Leadership for the New Millennium is a nine-week course that strives to give future business and government leaders the skills they'll need to run their organizations. It is operated by Regional and Continuing Education.

Bergquist is a 30-year special operations veteran. As the first president of Joint Special Operations University, which opened in August 2000, he is responsible for the education of intermediate and senior special operations personnel. The facility is designed to supplement the training provided by the individual military branches by focusing on how they can best work together on joint efforts such as humanitarian assistance, rescue missions and military operations.
