Leading With Purpose
April 1-5, 2019
Focusing On The Human Dimension For Better Results
Every leader has a purpose, and when they discover it, they ignite a fire to be the best leader possible. Identifying and fulfilling your leadership purpose requires aligning your choices, behaviors, and values. Brigadier General (Ret.) 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. Recognizing the human dimension in leadership includes encouraging diversity of thought and experiences, communicating effectively to connect with people and build relationships, and leaving a legacy by being significant in the lives of those you lead. Leaders who focus on the human dimension will begin to shape a culture that features trust, transparency, and continual learning.

Leaders Building Leaders
(USA, Retired, USMA 1981)
Becky specializes in inspirational speaking (nationally and internationally; corporate and academic), developing leader training programs, leader coaching, consulting and advising. Becky translated her military leadership principles and lessons learned, and developed her STEADFAST Leadership model, which she shares with the corporate and academic sector. Her expertise encompasses: developing leader training programs, leader coaching, consulting and advising, strategic level leadership, logistics, supply chain management, asset protection, physical security, risk management, diversity and inclusion, coaching and mentoring.
In 2010, following 27 years of service in the U.S. Army and retiring after achieving the rank of Brigadier General, Becky founded her own company. In this capacity, she has worked in the corporate sector speaking on leadership, as well as in the academic sector (Harvard, Duke, Columbia University, Penn State, Ithaca College, Virginia Military Institute, McIntire School of Business at the University of Virginia, etc). Becky and her book are the focus of the Thayer Leader Development Group’s first online leadership series.
Prior to retiring from the Army, Becky had over 15 years of executive‐level leadership experience, developing and training high-performing, complex and diverse teams capable of strategic planning and execution. She has a proven record of leading change, building successful teams in demanding environments (Afghanistan and Iraq, Germany, South America), and creating innovative solutions, systems and programs to complex problems. She is an experienced leader and logistician, a highly effective communicator, and a strategic planner with exceptional organizational skills.
Becky is a 1981 graduate of the U.S. Military Academy and achieved an historic milestone as the first female graduate of West Point to be promoted to General Officer. She was the senior Commanding General (equivalent to CEO) for logistics in Iraq, and was the first female in U.S. history to command in combat at the strategic level. In this capacity, she was responsible for leading over 200 multi‐disciplined units (20,000 military and 5,000 civilians) located across 55 different bases, providing supply, maintenance, transportation and distribution support to over 250,000 personnel serving in Iraq.
During active service, she served in Europe as the Deputy Commanding General (equivalent to Chief Operating Officer) for the 21st Theater Support Command and has experience leading a multi-national team in wholesale level logistics operations. Prior to Europe, she served as the Chief Advisor to the Combatant Commander (Four Star General) for Southern Command, whose responsibility encompassed military training and operations for South America. She was also responsible for coordinating directly with high‐level organizations such as Office of the Secretary of Defense, Joint Chiefs of Staff, Department of State, U.S. Congress, U.S. Ambassadors and equivalent foreign military and civilian organizations.
Becky honorably served with the U.S. Army and retired as a General Officer in 2008. The culmination of her career came in 2006 when she became the first female Chief of Ordnance and Commanding General of the Army’s Ordnance Center and Schools (equivalent to President of a University), responsible for the leader development and institutional training for the second largest branch in the army with over 100,000 members of the Ordnance Corps.
