Default Air Force Logo Know your Airmen as individuals, lead as team
As a 22-year chief master sergeant, I have come across many leaders and supervisors in my time. Some leaders I wanted to emulate and others I wanted to do the complete opposite of what they did. When I walked into Wilford Hall Medical Center, Lackland Air Force Base, Texas, as a brand new airman basic, 22 years ago; I was overwhelmed.

Maj. Naomi Henigin, 60th Force Support Squadron commander Balancing work, life strengthens identity
As the Air Force focuses on resiliency for our Airmen and their families, concepts like work-life balance are given renewed consideration. The health benefits of maintaining a balance between our career identity and our "true self," the one typified by the activities we engage in outside of work, has led to special attention on finding the happy
