Default Air Force Logo A Matter of Choice: Enhancing the decision making process
It is believed that the more choices one has, the easier it is to make a good decision. However, current studies in leadership are finding that having too many choices can be overwhelming and complicate decision making significantly. For example, in the Paradox of Choice, Barry Schwartz indicates that choice can be both a blessing and a curse. The

Default Air Force Logo Lorenz on Leadership: The continuum of training
I believe we should work our boss' boss' problems. I have found that if we see the bigger picture -- if we understand the larger context of our challenges -- we will make better decisions. Since assuming command of Air Education and Training Command, I have been trying to understand where our challenges fit in the bigger picture. My boss, of

Default Air Force Logo Sight challenged: The importance of sunglasses
I'm in my early 40s and I'm sight challenged. On July18, I completed the eighth surgery on my eyes - that's number eight within the last 10 months. And, I've never worn glasses. The good news - I'm not blind. That's partly a joke, but, it was a real risk every time I got on the surgeon's table. To him, it was "routine" and no big deal. If it

Default Air Force Logo Uniform inspires act of honoring Airmen
On a recent trip to a bookstore, I was approached by a man in his late 30s to early 40s. He seemed nervous and upset - avoiding eye contact and shifting his weight from one foot to the other. My guard went up immediately. In 22 years of military service, I've heard some negative things said about the military, my branch of service, my choice of

Default Air Force Logo Lessons learned: find, be mentor
"I'm sorry to tell you that you haven't been selected for promotion." That one sentence strikes fear in almost every career Airman. Unfortunately for me, I have heard it twice in two years. The first time, utter devastation because it was completely unexpected. I knew what my Promotion Recommendation Form said and I thought I knew what my records

Default Air Force Logo Time for another “noise complaint”
Approximately 20 years ago, the 310th Fighter Squadron Top Hats began waking up the West Valley when most people were getting ready for bed. The low altitude navigation targeting infrared for night, or LANTIRN, was making its debut in the F-16 community. It was leading edge technology at the time, and it allowed F-16 pilots the capability to see at

Default Air Force Logo Military medical care not bad deal
Recently I had the opportunity to get firsthand experience with our medical system. I thought it would be good to share what I learned and observed during my experience. It all started back in late April. I went to see my primary care manager about a breathing problem, and I was referred to an ear, nose and throat specialist downtown. I received a

Default Air Force Logo Instill Pride in Luke Air Force Base
As I look around the installation, I am incredibly proud of the men and women who accomplish our mission of training the world's greatest fighter pilots and maintainers while deploying mission ready warfighters. This mission couldn't be accomplished without your professionalism, commitment and pride. Pride comes in many forms - such as the way we

Default Air Force Logo Happy veterans day from a veteran
This will be a different Veterans Day for me this year. Last year I spent Veterans Day as part of an Air Force provincial reconstruction team in Qalat, Afghanistan, doing an in-lieu-of mission. I guess I never considered myself or members of my generation as veterans. That is a pretty lofty title that conjures up visions of someone else, older,

Default Air Force Logo Heritage, tradition, celebration important to remember, pass on
An important anniversary was honored in September as in preceding years, and it is something I'm proud to celebrate. It's our Air Force's birthday and celebrating it helps us recall our heritage as well as symbolize our current mission. Our service's birthday gives us an event to honor the service and sacrifice of Air Force men and women. I have
