AME is conducting a very special workshop at the home of leadership, the United States Military Academy at West Point. The workshop is designed to give insights into how to create the conditions for a team to win and win BIG! The US Military Academy at West Point is a world class benchmark for Leader Development. Developing leaders in business is a major topic of concern in America. This workshop will show you how the US Military identifies, trains, and professionally develops Leaders we can count on. We instinctively know that America’s strength and competitive advantage is its workforce, yet that workforce can only be as good as its leadership at all levels. The agenda will cover the full range of leadership training for ’Heartbeat Leaders’ those who define the core essence of an organization and who represent the key linkage between the individual team member and the rest of the organization. Specifically, practical methods will be reviewed for organizations to conceive, define, plan, implement, and measure Leader Identification, Training, and Development Systems so that they reinforce and sustain the transformation to excellence. A similar event was conducted in 2010 and received a 4.8 rating on a 5.0 scale!
“Leadership and Character Building at West Point, in the Army and Beyond”
Starting with an in-depth tour of the Academy, you will see how every aspect of academy life is focused on the mission. LTC Dave Jones will provide AME a behind the scenes tour of West Point to illustrate how USMA inculcates the lives of its Cadets with ‘values’ every day in every way. He will also lead an interactive discussion about how the academy instills Leadership and Ethics and share how West Point approaches Leadership and Character Development. Dave will facilitate a discussion that explores leadership development concepts, and application at West Point. They come to West Point from every station in life and every neighborhood around the world, but they graduate into leaders we entrust with lives. He will draw on linkages with the Military and the business world. In addition, he will share with the team some leader insights about shaping the Millennial Generation, and share some insights from his year-long deployment in Afghanistan
