The Successful You:  Towards Being a More Effective Leader with featured guest Dr. Jane Wheeler, Professor of Management and Executive Coach

"Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other."
- John F. Kennedy

The Army's slogan, "Be all you can be," is more than just a catchy phrase. It represents a way of leading, learning, and ultimately, living. The slogan starts and ends with the simple word - "Be." It also challenges us with a desired action - "all you can." Laid out this way, the slogan frames our suggested action with our suggested way of being. It recognizes that everything we are and can be starts and ends with our ability to be.

This philosophy pervades Jane Wheeler's fun, enthusiastic, and challenging style as a teacher in the classroom, researcher, executive coach, and OD consultant. During this session, experience Jane's infectious enthusiasm as she challenges each of us to open ourselves up to the potential of more fully learning and living. She will also share her perspective on how to move towards being more effective leaders and supporting others in that journey.

Join us for this thought provoking conversation to explore where leadership and learning intermingle to create "The Successful You."
