Default Air Force Logo The measurement of a good leader
Leadership...what is it? Leadership is a performing art. Are leaders born or made? We are all born with what we have, what we do with that is up to us. So, who's a leader? Leadership isn't a title. There's no box for leadership on an organizational chart. Leadership isn't a degree, an award, a position or an office on the top floor. True leadership

What would happen to your shop if you did not get to work tomorrow? Would the rockets or missiles launch? Would a sick patient be seen? Would the retiree get his identification card?

Airmen of all ranks face the challenge of being a trainer at some point in their careers. While it may not be for a position requiring formal certification, the responsibilities of the trainer are still the same. They must assure the readiness of their trainees.

Coming from an Air Force family, I already had a pretty good idea what the Air Force was all about before I joined, or so I thought. Passed on to me by my father, I have been deeply embedded with Air Force ethos, the importance and value of education and training. My father, Lt. Col. Kenneth Bauer Jr., retired after his 20 years in service, but has

Every decision or complicated situation we face brings to bear all of our beliefs, attitudes, values, experiences and education. The fewer the experiences, the easier the decision, right?
