No One Is Bigger Than The Mission: Military & Leadership, Part Two

Finishing the second part of our Military Leadership podcast, Russ continues his conversation with Lee and Ric on who were the military leaders that inspire them. One of the key take-aways is how helpful it is for everyone on the team to have a clear mission and purpose to what they are trying to accomplish. Once everyone knows their role and what they specifically bring to the team then they become bought into the bigger picture. Harry S Truman, the 33rd President of the United States and former Colonel in the U.S. Army, once said, “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That is the sweet spot for any leader and any team, everyone embracing a mantra of “I am not bigger than our mission.” And as we continue to lead different we will embrace that role.
