Retirees share lessons learned
Nov. 19, 2018 - On Wednesday, November 1, the People and Culture Directorate hosted a Post Retirement Lessons Learned Panel.

Moments in leadership
Nov. 7, 2018 - As a military retiree, I vividly remember a variety of occasions where I was required to step up and take the lead. One specific incident which I’ll never forget occurred during the beginning of Operation Allied Force while stationed at Aviano Air Base, Italy.

Leadership to Me
Nov. 6, 2018 - In my opinion a good leader works hard, provides a clear direction for those that follow them to go and would not assign anything to their subordinates that they haven’t or are not willing to do themselves.
