Jeffrey Engel / Southern Methodist University
SMU Professor Jeffrey Engel has long been one of our keenest observers of the modern presidency, and on June 1st he’ll lead a fascinating and instructive account of the presidential qualities that have served well and poorly in the Oval Office, beginning with Franklin D. Roosevelt’s first hundred days. This limited access discussion group will survey each president’s political skill, vision, cognitive style, organizational capacity, ability to communicate, and emotional intelligence–that last quality may be the most important in predicting presidential success.
