Focal Point Forum: Our Speaker: Maj Gen (Ret) Nicholas Krawciw


FocalPoint forum is hosted by a group of businessmen and professionals who gather on Wednesday mornings every other week to hear from top leaders on important topics.  FocalPoint meets to help business and professional men find balance, focus and direction in a rapidly changing world.

Nick will address the group on “Qualities of an Effective Leader – Part 1, Character.”  

A 1959 West Point graduate, MG Krawciw retired from the Army in 1990 after serving 31 years.  He commanded at all levels from platoon to division, commanding the Third Infantry Division from 1987 to 1989.

Nick served two combat tours in Vietnam (his combat decorations include three awards of the Silver Star and a Purple Heart), was an instructor in leadership at West Point, and was the Senior U. S. Observer and Chief Operations Officer with the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization in Israel during the Yom Kippur War and its aftermath.  After his retirement, until 2006, Nick served as the Senior Military Advisor on Ukraine for the Secretary of Defense.

At the conclusion of Nick’s remarks there will be an opportunity for discussion with other leaders, to include exploring the morning’s topic from the Bible’s perspective.
