Anyone interested in developing their leadership skills.

Event overview

Spend an afternoon listening to the inspiring R. Patrick Huston, Brigadier General U.S. Army Office of The Judge Advocate General, as well as participate in workshops to develop your leadership skills, understand the value of mindful leadership, and the value of leading verses managing. This event is structured to connect you with like-minded peers to form a network of support on your leadership development journey. At the end of the event you will be given the opportunity to participate in a leadership 360 assessment with personal, individual feedback for your growth and performance.

This event has been scheduled at this time so you can participate whether you are on site in Washington, DC or sitting in your office on the West Coast. Seating is limited.

What is a 360-Leadership Assessment?

A 360-leadership assessment is a form of feedback for leaders in which their skills, effectiveness, and influence as a leader are evaluated. With this sort of evaluation, the individual and their coach receives feedback from a set of peers, those that report to them and those they may report to or are ranked higher in the organization, another words a holistic grouping from all angles.

Any of us, no matter where you fit in the organization, is a leader… and, as any good leader, you want to grow and improve and you want your organization to grow and be successful.

As a leader, if you don’t keep growing then your organization won’t keep growing. So, it is important to develop yourself and/or other leaders in the hopes that it will benefit your company as well as yourself.

Using 360-leadership assessments is one of the best ways to develop leadership within your organization.

Research shows asking for feedback from others in the organization is strongly correlated to a leader’s overall effectiveness.

In fact, the top-ranked leaders in terms of effectiveness were also ranked in the top 10% in terms of their willingness to ask for feedback. This shows just how much your openness to receiving feedback is linked to your effectiveness as a leader.

We are excited and proud to offer the 360 assessment at the conclusion of the Leadership 3.0 event for those who attend.


At the conclusion of the Leadership 3.0 event registration information will be evaluated. For those that attended the event, a link with instructions for completing the assessment will be sent within 1 week. When you receive your email, your instructions will encourage you to select 30 individuals from your network who are familiar with you. These 30 individuals could be peers, those higher in the organization, those whom report to you, and those whom may know you outside the organization that have observed your leadership skills. They will have til the 2nd week of January to complete the assessment. We do encourage you to send your email to your 30 chosen within a few days of receiving it to ensure they have plenty of time during the holidays. Due to the timeline, a nudge from you after the new year might be a great idea. Once we have reached the deadline your link will be closed. By the end of January, you will receive your results and have an opportunity to work with a coach to go through your results and make a plan of action. This offering is a high-level offering. Coaching with your results will be a one time, 30-minute opportunity to give feedback and suggestions as you chart your leadership course.

In Honor Of Sharon T. Swartworth

  Chief Warrant Officer 5
Sharon T. Swartworth (deceased)

Leaders empower others, listen, think strategically, innovate, make thoughtful decisions, show empathy, adapt, delegate, communicate, remain committed, stand with their team, inspire, and exude positivity.

Long-time ILTA peer, Sharon Swartworth Chief Warrant Officer 5 exemplified these traits in all of her work for the U.S. Judge Advocate General's Corps (JAG) and when volunteering for ILTA. To honor Sharon, ILTA developed the "Sharon Swartworth Leadership Development Seminar" in 2004. At ILTACON in 2004-2012, 2014, and 2016 US Army JAG Corps leaders have provided education and insights for ILTA members. In 2013, we developed an annual full-day, conference separate from ILTACON in honor of Sharon and dedicated to instilling the leadership skills Sharon learned in the JAG Corps, to ILTA members.

This annual event is inspired by a true leader, Sharon Swartworth. She was a soldier, a legal administrator and a committed ILTA volunteer leader — the embodiment of a leader in all aspects of her life. In an article published just after her death, an Army leader said, "What people recognized in Sharon was her ability to develop a vision for an organization and, more important, to implement that vision through persistence, toughness and tenacity. ... Without Sharon's leadership, these changes have slowed, but her vision and drive were unmistakable, and these changes are being carried out by others."

Seeing Sharon's great aptitude for leadership demonstrated the importance of training all of our ILTA peers in leadership. A leader can lead from any level of an organization. Leadership is a state of mind where one solves problems and inspires others. Thank you, Sharon, for being the ILTA’s inspiration to continually cultivate new leaders.
