Speaking at Christopher Newport University (Newport, VA), Pollard outlines his vision of leadership, arguing that the exercise of true leadership can never be divorced from questions of faith. This is because leadership is fundamentally about character development, and thus when it is exercised in a servant-like manner it has the ability to create an organization that is as much a moral community as it is a profit-oriented institution.
