John F. Kennedy once said “leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.” In this presentation you will hear of one way where leadership and learning intermingle to create “The Successful You.” The Army has a slogan which says, “Be all you can be.” Yet, this slogan can be viewed as more than just a catchy phrase. It can represent a way of leading, learning, and ultimately living. The slogan starts and ends with the simple word “Be.” In between it challenges us with a desired action: “all you can.” Laid out this way, the slogan frames our suggested action with our suggested being. It recognizes that everything we are and can be about starts and ends with our ability to be. In doing so, the slogan challenges each of us to step into ourselves. As we do this, we open ourselves to the potential of more fully learning and living. And, simply put, it also helps us move towards being more effective leaders.
