LIVE Session Presented by:


Clifton L. Taulbert

Clifton L. Taulbert

Clifton Taulbert, a Pulitzer nominee grew up on the Mississippi Delta during the era of legal segregation. Although his opportunities were few, he dreamed beyond the fields of the Delta. Those dreams were nurtured by the community of caring adults who saw their future through his lengthening steps. They stepped up and become the community he would need to grow his dreams. Their UNSELFISH LEADERSHIP worked.

Today, Taulbert, a Time Magazine recognized entrepreneur is also recognized globally as a builder of community within our workplaces and where we teach and learn. Taulbert has lectured for Fortune 500 companies, federal agencies as well as entrepreneurial start-ups. He has also lectured at Harvard University Principals Center, the United States Air Force Academy, the United States Supreme Court and was a guest speaker at the United Nations hosted Global Innovation Conference.

Taulbert’s K-12 Leadership consulting has been embraced internationally through the Department of Defense Schools throughout Europe and the International School in Europe and in Central America. Taulbert has captured the “Community” of his youth in his internationally embraced book: EIGHT HABITS OF THE HEART (Penguin) and more recently his EIGHT HABITS OF THE HEART FOR EDUCATORS (Corwin Press) which made its debut at Harvard University Principals Center. Taulbert believes that the culture we create and the way we engage with others are essential for success within all our workplaces and learning places. He sees Building Community as our commitment to an inclusive and collaborative culture.

Taulbert has been inducted in the United States Enlisted Airmen’s Hall of Fame. He serves on the board of the Eudora Welty Foundation and Tulsa, Oklahoma’s Historical Society as well as a Trustee for the University of Tulsa. His first book, ONCE UPON A TIME WHEN WE WERE COLORED was requested as a gift for Nelson Mandela upon his release from prison. Taulbert was one of the voices of community chosen by CNN to welcome the new millennium.
