Unique pieces on Leadership posted on my Facebook page and website

Several years ago I was invited to speak about Leadership at Coast Guard Headquarters. To help prepare for this talk, I asked three people who I know are leaders for their thoughts.

The criteria I used to select these three men was simple: “Could I trust him with my life?”

I served with two of them in the Coast Guard and I have known the third all my life. Although each one’s background was vastly different from the other two, what they wrote was amazingly similar. 

This should be the criteria against which all leaders are judged. There are many people who have leadership roles, but who, in reality, are simply managers. Over the years I have realized that leadership is innate and not an acquired skill such as typing. Leaders cannot be made, only destroyed. A leader’s skills can be honed over time and with mentoring from other leaders. They can be easily destroyed by those who are not leaders and who are fearful or jealous of a leader’s ability.

Hopefully you find these pieces useful in your life. Please let me know what you think of them and if you have anything to add.
