Lincoln Leadership Institute is thrilled to announce its newest faculty member, Dennis Owens.
Dennis literally puts the live in Lincoln Leadership Live. He is a 35-year television broadcaster and news anchor who has won the prestigious Edward R. Murrow Award and 15 Emmy Awards. His story-telling, production knowledge, personality and passion for history make him a natural fit for the LLI team. He has guided our pandemic-related transition to online offerings and helps to make them memorable.
In addition to producing videos from the battlefield, Dennis takes participants live to Little Roundtop and Pickett’s Charge and explains why those important sites are relevant to their workplaces in 2021.
“I enrolled in the Lincoln Leadership Institute program twice in the past and found it to be fulfilling. It made me a better, more engaged and energized employee,” Dennis said. “The chance to bring my skills to the LLI team and enhance their already impactful program is a real thrill. It’s rewarding to see so many of the participants grasp the leadership concepts and take them back to their places of employment.”
Owens has covered presidents and a pope, political conventions and Super Bowls. His statewide political talk show is must-see TV for movers and shakers in the battleground state of Pennsylvania. He has enjoyed a front-row seat to some of the most powerful leaders on the planet and is eager to share that knowledge with Lincoln Leadership clients.
“The Lincoln Leadership Live goal is to enlighten and entertain, just like we do in a news broadcast,” Owens said. “But we want our students to be engaged, re-energized and become better workplace leaders and followers. They will leave us ready to make a difference in their day-to-day endeavors.”
Owens is wowed by the quality of the Lincoln Leadership team and its ability to bring the leadership lessons of 1863 into sharp focus for employees in our present-day world. “I have seen first-hand our team make an impactful difference in companies large and small around the world,” Owens said. “Without question, the breadth of knowledge and quality of experience offered by Lincoln Leadership Institute is unparalleled.”
Owens is a Philadelphia native, a cum laude graduate of LaSalle University and lover of Philly sports and all things Gettysburg.
