Default Air Force Logo Leadership...Are you up for the Challenge
Leadership is often defined as the capacity to lead. Though this definition describes the actions of an individual in a leadership position, it does not provide any insight on what makes a good leader.  Though there are hundreds of books and guides that provide steps to becoming a better leader, I believe that true leadership is more than leading

Default Air Force Logo Aim High Airmen!
I firmly believe that the best things in life are the triumphs that make you proud the ones that do not come easy.  All of the things I consider to be my greatest accomplishments have required sustained effort. Obtaining my degree, being commissioned into the Air Force, passing my certification exam, and running a half marathon all come to mind.

Default Air Force Logo First line of defense
As experienced supervisors and leaders, are we empowering our junior leaders to spread their wings as supervisors and leaders at their level?   Specifically, I'm referring to the day-to-day leadership roles within their work areas. I can remember as a young staff sergeant, my team relied on me to motivate them, teach them and correct them.  My

Default Air Force Logo Airmen: Are you taking care of them?
Many years ago I was just starting out as a young flight chief and senior NCO. I had traveled back east to attend the Maintenance Production Superintendent Course and was headed back home.  After I dropped off my rental car I hopped on the bus that would take me back to the terminal.  It is this exact moment in time how I viewed our Airmen changed

Default Air Force Logo Partnership: the F-35 Way
A few years back, I went on a 365 day deployment and was struck by the international cooperation going into the fights in Iraq and Afghanistan.  On a daily basis, I coordinated with folks from the United Kingdom, Australia, the Netherlands, and France.  On a routine basis, I worked with Canadians and dealt with representatives from all of the Gulf

Default Air Force Logo Humility in Leadership
The definition of humility is "the quality or state of not thinking you are better than other people." This is not a trait we commonly attribute to our leaders.  In fact, when we think of a leadership role we often imagine one who is telling others what to do and how to do it with the confidence that they know better than anyone under their

Default Air Force Logo The "not my problem" problem
In an Air Force where being a leader at all levels is highly encouraged, it is becoming increasingly disturbing to me that people just do not seem to care. They are so focused on their particular area of responsibility, that when something new or unknown arises, they routinely brush it off as "not my problem." While this obviously does not apply to

Default Air Force Logo Do your goals match your dreams?
As a young man I grew up in a not so great area of San Antonio, Texas.  My parents were not perfect people but they did invest in me.  They taught me the basics and to be a man of my word. We were a family of little means but my parents instilled values and morals in me.  I say this to bring to light a trend that I have seen in today's youth.   As

Default Air Force Logo Get out of the Dorms
One of the biggest issues with today's generation is getting out of bed and away from electronics.  That said, the military today is no different. Any Airman living in the dorms what plans they have for the weekend, most of the time you will get an answer similar to "Videogames and Netflix."  Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with that but

Default Air Force Logo Honest Feedback
In each of our offices or shops, we work alongside some of the brightest and hardest working people in the world. We work long hours in all types of adverse conditions together. In our downtime, we get to know each other and each other's families personally. We build relationships, dare I say friendships, with those with whom we serve. Part of it
