My 3 Pillars of Leadership
Increase awareness, identify improvement opportunities, and strive to be your personal best.
Deepen personal connections, ignite passion in those around you, and enlist their support.
Create strategic plans, define and track success criteria, and iterate until victorious.
My Leadership Approach
Leadership is all about communication.
If the signal you’re sending isn’t coming through properly, you won’t get the results you want.
In the Marines, we used radio communications ranging from low frequency to satellite depending on whether we were on a ship, in a vehicle, or in the bush.
Any time I established contact with another unit, I asked how my signal was coming through.
The answer I always wanted to hear was:
“Five by five.”
This radio response is a rating of the STRENGTH and CLARITY of your signal.
If either quality is too low, your message won’t make it through.
I believe the same is true for our leadership.
Rate the STRENGTH and CLARITY of your current leadership technique.
