Default Air Force Logo Invisible Leadership
What do the words “invisible leadership” make you think of? When I think of invisible leadership, I think of leading people even though I don’t know exactly who is following. Similar to referent power, invisible leadership is when you influence followers because of the followers’ loyalty, respect, friendship, admiration, affection or a desire to gain approval.

Col. John Langell, official photo, U.S. Air Force Trust: The foundation of a high performing organization
Trust is an intangible characteristic based on a belief that the person, group or organization bestowed with that trust will act in the best interests of those who have faithfully provided it. Trust is the bedrock upon which the Air Force functions.

Default Air Force Logo Be the leader we remember
In my 25 years in the Air Force, I have had the opportunity to work with many types of leaders. The leaders I remember most are the ones who weren’t afraid to make decisions.

With resource readiness trending to the positive, what about restoring personal readiness? Have any of us really considered what personal attributes we will need to win any fight in any environment? Have you ever asked yourself if you are truly prepared to forward deploy in the harshest of conditions against a major adversary who will contest your every move and challenge your will to win?

Default Air Force Logo Leaders need resiliency too
For supervisors at every level, it is easy to live vicariously through our subordinates. Let me give a brief example. Within the last year, my superintendent and I had to deal with a disciplinary situation within the unit. How did we both react to the challenge?

Default Air Force Logo Working vs. serving: an important difference
Every military member takes an oath. Among other things, this oath verbally confirms that each of us will support and defend the Constitution of the United States. This is not merely an occupation, this is a service commitment that requires true dedication and sacrifice.

Master Sgt. Khafiz Gondry, official photo, U.S. Air Force Finding my voice as a quiet leader in a not-so-quiet world
I have always been quiet and awkward around people which is oftentimes viewed as a negative attribute and is something I have struggled with throughout my 19-year Air Force career. Since I don’t always have much to say out loud, I have endured the common comments and questions about my quietness from peers, supervisors, first sergeants and chiefs alike.

Default Air Force Logo Staying resilient when 50 percent of your unit deploys
The 60th Maintenance Squadron was extremely busy in 2017. During the past year, I had the opportunity to be part of numerous high-performing teams. We answered the nation’s call through deploying over 15 percent of our Airmen to overseas contingency operations at locations including the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Iraq, Qatar and Jordan.
