Default Air Force Logo Leadership 100 vs. leadership 500: Where does your leadership rank?
I recently attended a meeting of senior leaders to discuss topics of various importance. It is normally out of character for me to daydream during meetings, but in this case I am guilty as charged. My mind pondered concerns of leadership triggered by comments made by another senior leader. The concept “Leadership 100 vs. Leadership 500” came to mind as an expression of my feelings about the importance of growing leaders as we progress in rank.

Default Air Force Logo Being a supervisor, leader is not always easy
In my 37 years of service to the United States Air Force, both as an active duty Chief Master Sergeant and Senior GS civilian supervisor, I have always wondered why many supervisors find honest feedback, both positive and negative difficult. Is it that some supervisors do not want to be confrontational? Want to be liked? Don’t have the skills to confront poor performance?

uniform Why I wear the uniform
To wear the uniform is more than to put on clothes and say you are going to do something. Putting on a uniform means taking on something bigger than yourself. To put the country’s needs, desires, and commitments before yours.

Default Air Force Logo Mentorship from below
It is often stated; to be a great leader, you must also tackle the art of being a great follower. This statement could not be more evident when it comes to the mentorship officer’s gain from the enlisted force. Every officer has been told at some point in their career to find a strong senior non-commissioned officer and attached yourself to them.

Default Air Force Logo Being ready in a crisis
Early on the morning of 9/11, I woke with a start. It was not because I instinctively knew something bad was going to happen – it was because my crew partner was screaming my name and asking me to get out of bed. As a First Lieutenant missileer stationed at F.E. Warren AFB, Wyoming, I was responsible for launch operations of the Minuteman III Intercontinental Ballistic Missile – the most powerful weapon in our nation’s nuclear deterrent arsenal.

N/A Building community
“My shift is coming to an end and now I can finally go home.” I can’t begin to count how many times I have thought this after a long day. I suspect I am not alone in my thinking.

N/A Why I wear the uniform
“I am an American Airman.” This is one of my favorite lines from The Airman’s Creed. I wanted to join the Air Force to experience a sense of pride Airmen have when they wear the uniform. I wanted to be a part of the 1 percent of Americans who serve in the United States military, but not just any part of the military. I wanted to be a part of an even smaller percentage who serves in the United States Air Force.
