What is at the heart of a true leader? A servant leader truly puts the needs of the organization ahead of their own. Those who have a passion to serve create a positive attitude for the organization and make an infectious impact on others.
Have you been part of an organization where the story you heard about originally which sounded great, doesn't match the reality. This is what happens when the leader does not have the strength of character to maintain the integrity of the mission.
In this week's episode, we'll explore a number of the ways to promote servant leadership throughout an organization, community and a nation at large. There are a number of big upsides to individuals, families and groups when leaders seek to serve others before themselves. Listen to learn how this powerful, personal style translates to high-impact, PATRIOT LEADERSHIP.
In recent episodes we've looked at how personal, organizational, small business and community leadership is crucial to MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN. Each have a compounding effect on our town, county, state and ultimately the nation. A crucial element of our leadership role as American Citizens is political influence and how our influence impacts the safety, security and future of our nation.
PATRIOT MISSION's 5th LIBERTY Principle is as follows: We Believe Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are put at tremendous RISK by those who reject capitalism and promote excessive public spending. Why is America at risk because of excessive public spending? There are many answers to this question, but the example shared in today's broadcast is the impact on our front line warriors.
The politicians we elect make decisions about spending the taxpayer's money. The decisions they make, which ultimately we the citizenry allow to happen, are either Making America Stronger or weaker. We may catch a sound byte about these decisions in the news, but most people have no idea how those decisions affect our front line warriors who are tasked with protecting our Lives, Liberty and our Pursuit of Happiness. Listen to this show and you'll have a different perspective.
In the preceding episodes of the Leadership Series, we've examined key elements of the Leader's mindset. Leaders must have a desire to personally learn and improve their skills. In our view they must also lead from the servant's perspective. In other words, a Servant Leader has a passion to help others knowing full well that when they do, their lives will be enriched.
In episode 23, we will start to examine a practical idea that we believe is crucial to MAKING AMERICA STRONG AGAIN. There are 94 million people out of today's work force. How much talent, skill, insight and wisdom are within that group. What if we could tap into The POWER of Small Business to create a unique strategy to serve those who are out of the work force, while at the same time serving small business Founders?
Regardless of your experience, if you are willing to learn, share what you know and/or take counsel from those around you regardless of their age or background, then your life will be enriched, both personally and professionally. No matter what your goals, the problems you are attempting to solve, your time or financial constraints, when servant leaders work together, magic happens.
Leadership comes in many different forms, from a wide variety of people. When we discuss Military Leadership throughout history, we often hear stories of senior officers or those who have been recognized for brave acts of heroism. However, leadership is not limited to just a handful of service members.
According to the Army Field Manual 7-22.7 among other leadership duties, "The Non-Commissioned Offers (NCO) teaches individual and collective training, develops unit cohesion, fosters the values of loyalty and commitment and builds spirit and confidence."
In this episode, you'll meet an NCO with an amazing story. Sergeant Christopher Vars was an NCO who led his team in battle in the Korean War near the Chosin Reservoir during the harsh winter of 1950. Learn how Sgt Vars distinguished himself on the battlefield and why his family waited 65 years to welcome their war hero home from a land far away.
Throughout our Leadership Series, we've examined different stages of Leadership Development from the moment we challenge the person in the mirror to the decisions we make that impact our personal and professional lives. In Episode 21, we begin to look at the way our experiences can shape the future of other people.
