2024 leadership conference wraps up in Botswana

The Dome Technology leadership team returned Wednesday from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Okavango Delta in Botswana, part of the company’s annual leadership-conference program.

The conference focus was Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy SEALs Lead and Win by Jocko Willink and Leif Babin. Based on the 12 chapters in the books, the leadership team divided into groups to teach the entire team the principles and their application during the previous year. The team will continue applying the concepts found in the book through 2024.


Of course, there were the wonders of nature to take in too—mostly in the form of up-close-and-personal encounters with African wildlife on the five-day mobile camping safari.

Each year the purpose and mission statement of the leadership conferences are the same:

  1. Elevate company leaders and key employees beyond their current capabilities.
  2. Build team unity, increase transparent and honest communication, and strengthen trust.
  3. Build relationships through exclusive, unique experiences.
  4. Attract and retain key people.

Previous conferences have been held in Iquitos, Peru, and Reykjavík, Iceland, and are part of developing a culture of excellence at Dome Technology. “This is a repeat effort to hone our leadership efforts,” said CEO Bradley Bateman.
