Lt. Col. Taylor Johnston, official photo, U.S. Air Force “That’s just the way we do it” is not a good answer
I’ve been lucky in my career so far to instruct on three different aircraft and serve in the contingency response world. I started off flying C-21As (LearJets) doing distinguished visitor travel, then transitioned to the C-130 E/H doing airland and airdrop missions. I’ve also flown on air-refueling missions. As I transitioned into the C-130 and KC-135, I asked many questions on why the techniques and procedures were a certain way.

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.

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. Many times, I found that people waivered and failed to make a move because it might be unpopular or be an uncomfortable decision to make.

Senior Master Sgt. Erin Panas, official photo, U.S. Air Force Leadership by example…It matters most when it’s cold and dark
One frigid and dark midnight shift, I was crouched down inside a freezing defensive fighting position; boots caked with mud and bone-cold. Growing up in Michigan, I was used to the freezing cold, but this was the coldest I had ever been.

Chief Master Sgt. Jason Morehouse, Official Photo, U.S. Air Force Today's subordinates are tomorrow's leaders
The front line supervisor and subordinate relationship is not just one of the most important relationships, it’s the foundation on which our subordinates’ development starts. How we catch and care for our Airmen, in my opinion, is the most critical step in their professional development.

Chief Master Sgt. Reny Nunag, official photo, U.S. Air Force Leadership is like keeping a promise
What an honor it is to serve in today’s Air Force. While writing does not always come easily for me, when given the opportunity, you can bet I’ll chomp at the bit. I would like to take a moment to share my recipe for success, a concept I passed along to our future leaders at Airmen Leadership School. It basically comes down to one word: Promise.
