About the Program

The Nation’s Leadership Laboratory: What Are They Teaching at West Point and Why?

The Military Academy at West Point has taught leadership and graduated leaders of character for more than 200 years. During times of war, the emphasis on the principles of leadership is even more profound. Today, with our nation embroiled in the Global War on Terrorism, these young graduates are being asked to lead in the most demanding and extreme conditions imaginable and to be ready to do so almost immediately. This presentation examines key aspects of the leadership curriculum at the Academy and suggests lessons that can be learned by non-military leaders struggling to perform, do the right thing and lead with character, integrity and competence.
