That honor is fought for by the servant leader and that servant leader is worthy of honoring.

Memorial Day Leadership Lessons

As I listened to the commencement speeches, gazed at the Memorial Wall, thought about my experiences and what the EOD graduates are about to encounter, the more I pondered the heroism of our military (past and present), the more it became clear that the same characteristics that are present in the heart of a warrior are nothing short of a blueprint for success with respect to the leadership traits that should also be present in our business leaders.

Strategy Driven

What effective managers and leaders must recognize is that it begins with caring about the people who drive your business. Managers and leaders are not made equal.

Genteel Back-Channeling

I am also not the leader, at least positionally, in the situation, and the dynamics of the group do not allow me much leeway in leading from where I am at most of the time. I have some suggestions for those situations where you just can't escape the person, or remove them, or you are not the leader of the group. You are a true servant-leader.
