Improvement only happens with change, and change is a constant for an effective military.  Yet implementing change takes high energy, an abundance of patience, and extreme flexibility. United States Navy Rear Admiral Deborah Haven (retired) discusses her experiences in leading change and working in uncertain environments.  The lessons she learned apply to situations all leaders – military and civilian --  face.

For over 30 years, US Navy Rear Admiral Deborah Haven (ret.) has been a successful leader in a wide variety of military and civilian global logistics organizations. She is particularly skilled at introducing change in large organizations.

She graduated from the Naval War College, holds an MBA from LaSalle University in Philadelphia, and a BS from the University of Maryland, College Park. Admiral Haven is an executive coach, independent consultant, and a member of the board of directors for the Flag and General Officer Network.
