idealism - GeneralLeadership“An idealist is a person who helps other people be prosperous.”
Henry Ford

Is idealism dead or alive in America? According to Merriam Webster, idealism is the attitude of a person who believes that it is possible to live according to a very high standard of behavior and honesty.  These are noble benchmarks to shoot for, especially if you work in a position of public trust or that is focused on leading by example. For example: President of the United States, United States Congress, federal or state government, military service, legal profession, medical profession, and parenthood to name just a few.… Read the rest

“When things go wrong in your command, start wading for the reason in increasing larger concentric circles around your own desk.” – General Bruce D. Clark

Leading your team to reach their potential requires you to balance the tension between leading your team to stretch to achieve at their capability, and overextending your team past what they’re able to do. Sometimes leaders have to inspire people past what those people think they can do–that’s growth and development.… Read the rest

Greatness - GeneralLeadership.com

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”
John Quincy Adams

The U.S. Air Force just installed its 21st Chief of Staff, General David Goldfein.  He became the CEO-equivalent of the Air Force on the 1st of July.  To me, he is one of the most inspirational leaders with whom I’ve ever had the privilege to work.  His unblinking integrity, positive attitude, leadership by example and focus on his Airmen combine to create an environment that will move our organization forward over the next four years of his term in office.… Read the rest

“Genius is not enough; we need to get the job done.”
Carol S. Dweck

The term “mindset” in the context of business typically invokes images of all-star athletes going for the gold or maybe thoughts of positive mental attitude – PMA – the self-development concept first introduced in 1937 by Napoleon Hill in his book Think and Grow Rich.

But that is not where this article is going to lead. Instead, we’re going to look at the research and study that Carol Dweck, the Lewis & Virginia Eaton Professor of Psychology at Stanford University, performed in the twenty-plus years leading up to her 2006 book titled Mindset.… Read the rest

This and That - GeneralLeadership

“Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.”
Dwight D. Eisenhower

The word “AND” is one of the most frequently used in the English language. It is defined as a “…conjunction used to connect words of the same part of speech, clauses, or sentences that are to be taken jointly. Synonyms: together with, along with, with, as well, and also.” A common word, but from a leadership perspective using the word and more often can make the difference between followers who are simply compliant, versus followers who are committed to you and your team’s success.… Read the rest

Communication - GeneralLeadership.com“Precision of communication is important, more important than ever, in our era of hair trigger balances, when a false or misunderstood word may create as much disaster as a sudden thoughtless act.”
James Thurber

We have all heard how important effective, constant, accurate, and informative communication is to the effectiveness of a leader. Followers are hungry for information and they want to hear what a leader has to say; they clearly recognize the value in hearing it from the “horse’s mouth.”

As time marches onward and we cycle through different communications climates in our country, our communications must adjust. I have expressed my effective communication message before on this blogsite.… Read the rest

Commencement - GeneralLeadership.comLeadership is not about the next election, it’s about the next generation.
Simon Sinek

The class of 2016 at my high school nominated me to give the commencement address. This was a great honor. As I thought about what to say, it was not as easy as I thought. I put some thought into what I could say that would be succinct, meaningful, and also reflect my experiences. I came up with: Life is About Experiences and Relationships.

I decided to share the speech (minus all the introductions and salutations) because it relates to my experiences and much of what I have written in previous leadership articles.… Read the rest
