Episode 13 - Chris Belavita

So how does a flock of birds know when and where to fly? In this recent RF Factor Podcast Episode, Chris Bellavita PhD, Director of Programs for the Naval Postgraduate School’s Center for Homeland Defense and Security shares some simple yet profound thinking on the subject of developing leaders.

If you’re hoping to learn the secret ingredients that make a good leader, you may not hear it in such clearly defined terms. In fact, the professor will tell you that: “It just works”.

Highly animated and a supersonic wit, the professor tells his RF Factor interviewers, that: “We don’t teach people things, they learn things.” Listen how he turns the tables on his hosts, challenging them to explain their closely held RF Factor concept of “Relentless Follow-up” in order that they too - “learn things”.

Turning back to the birds in the opening question, come watch and listen to Chris discuss the “Concept of Emergence” and you may learn the answer.

The episode is all available on YouTube, and via your popular podcast platforms (Apple, Google, Spotify, Castro, etc.) under the RF Factor Podcast.
