Default Air Force Logo Non-correlation in metrics can actually mean something
For almost three years now, our squadron has been working on our processes and how to track how well our processes work. Better known as metrics. One process I determined was vital for our mobility shop arose from the nature of how we deploy in the 6th and 9th Air Refueling Squadrons.

U.S. Air Force Airman First Class Mario Hernandez, 60th Medical Operations Squadron aerospace medical technician, practices firing party movements May 18, 2018 at the Honor Guard Building at Travis Air Force Base, Calif. Travis’ Honor Guard covers 45,000 sq. miles to include four National cemeteries, two Veterans Administration cemeteries and every private resting area between.

Earlier this year, my supervisor asked me, “Hey Carnell, would you mind going to Honor Guard training starting Monday?” My first thoughts were that something must have changed with my wingman’s schedule in our shop. We both intended doing Honor Guard and our leadership chose him to go first. As I had planned on going second, I was not looking forward to the sudden schedule change. My response to my supervisor was, “Yes, ma’am.”

Lt. Col. Heidi Clark, official photo, U.S. Air Force Good, not dumb
A favorite quote of mine is from “Space Balls,” the 1987 movie parody of “Star Wars.” In it, the villain Dark Helmet, says, “Now you see that evil will always triumph, because good is dumb.”

Chief Master Sgt. Shae Gee, official photo Silent Warriors
Memorial Day is upon us and we observe this holiday in honor of the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Both my grandfathers, who have since passed, served in the Korean War and World War II. It is an honor to know that I am able to serve in the capacity I can because of their contributions.

Col. Julie Rutherford, official photo, U.S. Air Force Set the example
I recently worked for a general who often told a leadership story about guiding a group of Airmen across a tarmac during the Gulf War while missiles were incoming. I had the opportunity to hear the story numerous times and was struck that I did not have a similar story of overcoming adversity in a combat environment that showed my leadership potential. It made me really consider what moments shaped me as a leader.

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.

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.

DSN: 837-5584 Stressed lately?
Being 34 days from my upcoming retirement I have spent some time recently looking back on my career thinking about events that helped develop me into who I am today. I’ve grown quite a bit since I was an airman basic at Royal Air Force Lakenheath, U.K., in 1995.

Default Air Force Logo Servant leadership and customer service are one
By joining the U.S. Air Force, we have committed ourselves to put “service before self.” By definition, we have answered an altruistic calling to serve others. This reflects servant leadership and customer service.

Default Air Force Logo Sit down, be humble
If I asked you to give me a list of words describing qualities you admire in a leader, what would be on it? Perhaps honest, selfless, competent, dedicated, courageous, charismatic or empathetic easily make the list. What about humble? A word synonymous with others like meek, submissive, modest or undistinguished couldn’t possibly be on your list of top leadership qualities.
