Academy instructors teach Schriever leadership seminar
The U.S. Air Force Academy's Behavior Science and Leadership Department has agreed to offer their four-part "Being a Professional" series at Schriever AFB.

This seminar aligns with the Air Force Chief of Staff's emphasis on character and leadership development.

This series is open to all personnel (enlisted, officers, civilian, etc.); diversity is encouraged. There are 25 slots available; first come, first served.  Attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch.

The vision is to offer this series two to four times a year at Schriever.  Lt. Col. Richard Ramsey, an Academy instructor, will lead this series the first time, but we are looking for volunteers who are interested in leading future series.  If interested, please plan on attending this first seminar and sticking around after each session.  Ramsey will discuss the material further and explain his techniques to make the series a transformational experience.
