About This Course

Every leader has a purpose, and when they discover it, they ignite a fire to become the best leader possible. Brigadier General (Retired) Rebecca “Becky” Halstead illuminates principles for Leading with Purpose through personal stories about her time serving as a leader during the war in Iraq; as she led one of the world’s largest supply chains for the US Army; and in poignant one-on-one interactions with soldiers.

While most of her work demanded world-class efficiency, Halstead discovered that efficiency focuses on data and measures, and is the work of managers. Leaders must also be effective, and that requires recognizing the human dimension — the people who add value day in and day out.

In this Sprint, Brigadier General Halstead guides leaders to:

  • Encourage diversity of thought and experiences to improve decision making and strengthen teams
  • Communicate effectively to connect with people and build relationships
  • Leave a legacy by being significant in the lives of those you lead

Leaders collaborate to share stories of leading with purpose as they test new behaviors and model purposed-based leadership. Through testing, modeling and sharing, leaders begin to shape a culture that features trust, transparency and continual learning.
