What if training didn't simply produce good leaders, but produced leaders of character? At the U.S.Military Academy at West Point, it does.
History shows us that graduates of West Point have become some of our nation's greatest leaders... both on the battlefield and in the boardroom. Thus it follows that all organizations can learn something from West Point regarding not simply what is taught but how it's taught. In fact, by learning and applying West Point's fundamental leadership principles, we can find ourselves in the midst of greatness every day — simply by going to work.
Leaders of Character: Leadership — the West Point Way takes us into some of this country's foremost organizations, including Procter & Gamble, the FBI, Penguin Publishing, and the People's Health Center,where we see West Point graduates putting their skills to the test. These are people who, like all of us,combat time and resource pressures, yet practice daily the principles of leading with character, heading top-notch teams and uplifting entire organizations.
We are also taken to West Point itself where we see firsthand how, from their first day to their last, cadets at the Academy learn and apply the following leadership principles:
- Ethics form the true basis of leadership.
- A leader's communication is critical to the success of those s/he leads.
- Teamwork is the transformative key to a group's effectiveness.
- A great leader knows how to delegate tasks and responsibility downward.
- A great leader must be able to plan, and be willing to abandon that plan if changing circumstances demand it.
- Failure can teach powerful lessons.
Discover how to bring character-driven leadership to your organization today with this timely and important new training, Leaders of Character: Leadership — the West Point Way.
Video hosted by Ed Ruggero, West Point graduate, noted leadership speaker, and author of the book, Duty First: A Year in the Life of West Point and the Making of American Leaders.
