In one-on-one interviews, and during panel discussions, Geoprofessional Business Association (GBA, formerly ASFE) founders respond to questions posed by then-GBA Executive Vice President John Bachner. Together, they explore the roots of leadership, with GBA leaders responding to questions like:
-You are or were a leader. Why? What (and/or who) did you have that it took?
-As a professional in business, what were the most important lessons you learned?
-Who was your hero and why?
-What do you know now that you wish you knew when you were 25? 35? 45?
Each of the interviews and panel discussions occurred during GBA's national meeting in October 2003, in Monterey, California. Each interview and panel is presented on its own. This interview is with Alfred C. Ackenheil, Ph.D., P.E. [Note: This video was produced when the Geoprofessional Business Association was known as ASFE.
