In Aim High: Chart Your Course and Find Success, James shares her personal and professional challenges, outcomes, strategies for success, and the problem-solving principles she used to overcome the daunting pressures, threats, and challenges that come with rising to the top of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Dr. Kathleen Hicks will introduce Former Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel who will deliver opening remarks followed by an armchair discussion with the Honorable Deborah Lee James and Ms. Beverly Kirk.
"Aim High is a testament to high ideals and hard work. Debbie James lived these principles during her time as Secretary of the Air Force. This book reminds us that it's not just about getting the job done, but also about HOW you do the job. I recommend Aim High for leaders at all levels!"
