We have all witnessed over the past year an absence of strong leadership, effective communications, and compassion for others – whether it be the national dialogue on race relations in our country, the heighten saber rattling in our interactions with North Korea, or just dealing with colleagues on the ups and downs of running an effective organization to achieve common goals. Added to this: making substantive change in the midst of chaos and confusion.
There was a recent incident at an air force cadet training facility where 4 young African American cadets were singled out with racial slurs. See how this commanding officer, the superintendent of the US Air Force Academy handled the situation.
This is a great example of Leading From the Front. This officer took the bull by the horns and addressed the racial issues head on. TRUE LEADERSHIP!
