Affection, true love for the guys I lead and follow. As many of you, my leadership journey started in the military (USMC), and I incorporated many of the traditional leadership traits. Through the years and tribulations, I came to understand that “Brotherhood, or the bond men establish in times of hardships were stronger than any leadership theory or concept. Of course if you are a Marine “JJ DID TIE BUCKLE…” Justice, Judgment, Dependability, Initiative, Dedication, Tact, Integrity, Enthusiasm, Bearing, Unselfishness, Courage, Knowledge, Loyalty, Endurance, comes to mind. I know some of you have a subordinate, team member, or teammate that you really disliked, you might not like him, but it’s our oath or duty as leaders to ensure they are properly trained, equipped, and lead.
