During his distinguished thirty-three-year military career, Major General Robert D. Shadley guided more than 3,500 military service members in combat and over 20,000 students in training. Now, the military calls on Shadley to speak on leadership in crisis and train on sexual harassment/assault response and prevention, with a key focus on doing the right thing. He has trained at Fort Leavenworth, Fort Jackson, Fort Gordon, Fort McCoy, Fort Huachuca and other military bases across the country.
Shadley authors articles for the Minnesota Chapter of the Military Officers Association of America (MCMOAA) and serves as a leading expert to national newspaper, radio and television news organizations on the subject of sexual assault in the military. He has sat alongside CBS News Correspondent Lesley Stahl and CNN‘s Carol Costello and his book has been featured within the Washington Post, USA Today, CBS Radio, NPR, and other regional and national publications.
Shadley has also held key leadership positions at Alliant Techsystems Inc. and has served as a senior mentor, providing logistics expertise to U.S. Army units prior to their deployment to Afghanistan and Iraq.
“Over the years, I have had the fortune, or misfortune to sit in on many classes and lectures. Yours was perhaps the best one. You have a very interesting way of blending meaningful concepts with real-life experiences in ways that provide depth and believability to important managerial practices.”
