Beyond the Call of Duty: A Conversation With Medal of Honor Recipients
Student Leader Seminar CEO and USNA Class of '61 Professor of Leadership Education and Editor, Dr. Joseph Thomas, facilitates a conversation with Medal of Honor recipients as they share their experiences and the lessons they learned.
The Student-Leader Seminar (S-LS) is designed to introduce the topic of ethical leadership to students, athletes, educators, public service professionals, and leaders in the not-for-profit and corporate sectors. The seminars are highly interactive discussions built around the themes of leading with purpose, ethical decision making, and the value of character.
The purpose of the Student-Leader Seminar is to:
- Develop leaders who are oriented toward achieving outcomes for the organization
- Build vertical team cohesion (chain-of-command) and lateral team cohesion (co-worker groups)
- Energize organizations with fun, interactive conversations centered on transformational leadership topics
- Develop in the learner a personal understanding of the processes and demands of leadership and provide the tools and tactics to realize full potential
- Encourage thinking about the role of character and the moral/ethical component of leadership
- Employ diagnostic instruments to help participants learn about themselves, their co-workers, subordinates, and leaders
- Provide supporting processes to ensure the learning continues beyond the seminar, including leadership coaching, peer coaching, leadership development plans and guides for further learning about leadership.

“Ethics can be dangerous to your career. The danger may come not from your own ethics but from the ethics of people around you and the organization of which you are a part. At work, you may be called upon to do things that turn out to be unethical or even illegal. What should you do if that occurs? According to the old adage, “The best defense is a good offense.” And the best defense against involvement in wrongdoing is being prepared for organizational challenges that will inevitably test your personal values, moral beliefs, and commitment to doing the right thing.”
