Meeting Great Minds: Clifton Taulbert

Meeting Great Minds: Clifton Taulbert

 

Meeting Great Minds is a speakers’ series created by LCCC’s University Partnership and presented at the Stocker Arts Center.  This program of outstanding speakers cultivates interaction and collaboration for area students, faculty, staff and community members.  This year MGM is focusing on Entrepreneurism.

Clifton Taulbert was the most recent presenter.   

As a Pulitzer-Nominated author and journalist, Taulbert has written for major newspapers across the country including The New York Times and the Atlanta Constitution.  His internationally embraced book, Eight Habits of the Heart, outlines principles he believes to be crucial to ensuring a work and learning place where productivity is valued and mutual respect is a way of life.  He has also authored eight additional books.

Taulbert grew up and was educated in the Mississippi Delta during the era of legal segregation and it was during those times of his young life that he experienced ‘Community’ the power of intentional unselfishness.  It changed his life!  The world was introduced to his small community in his internationally acclaimed memoir, Once Upon a Time When We Were Colored, which was made into a major motion picture.

Taulbert is the President and Founder of the Freemount Corporation, an Organizational Development and Human Capital consulting company.  He is especially known for his work with leaders and emerging leaders; helping them to embrace ‘Building Community’ as a necessary force-multiplier for their organizations and understand their critical role in ‘Diversity Leadership” for the 21st century.

The Meeting Great Minds events are free and open to the public.  For more information about the MGM  Series please contact the University Partnership at (440) 366-4949 or (800) 995-5222 ext. 4949 or by email at nleary@lorainccc.edu
