I believe that my greatest leadership strengths are honesty; competence; and assertiveness. I am open and honest with my team and my expectations of them but also of myself. I give credit when due and take blame when necessary. Having been a part of the team for 14 years, I have gained the knowledge and experience to lead and command and show my competence on a daily basis. Being firm and assertive but not overbearing also sets the tone with the guys so that things get done and competed right. There is a time to take suggestions and a time to issue orders and expect things to get done.
