Edwards sets stronger PACE by enhancing human capital

eafb-pace
Edwards Air Force Base will host two presentations of “Professionalism — Enhancing Human Capital” from the Profession of Arms Center of Excellence at the base theater Oct. 12, 8 a.m.-2 p.m. and Oct. 13, 5-10 p.m. Both sessions will have a one-hour lunch break.

As part of PACE’s Character and Leadership initiative, “Professionalism – Enhancing Human Capital,” examines how professionalism drives individual behavior and is the bridge that connects the Air Force Core Values to the Air Force mission.

Effective communication is not just about how to talk or present a brief. Effective communication, as taught in this presentation, is about building effective relationships that result in increased loyalty and trust. It is from the basis of trust that people can influence others and then shape their commitment to Air Force Core Values. This presentation examines the psychology of trust, authority and influence. By better understanding these principles of the human condition, people can better build healthy relationships that provide an opportunity for positive influence.

Although targeted at effective working relationships within the Air Force, attendees are able to extend the lessons to personal relationships as well. PACE describes the feedback from this presentation as overwhelmingly positive, ranging from, “Will make me a better leader, father and husband,” to “I want to take the longer version,” to “Inspirational — this will change how I interact with people and how I raise my kids.”
