Leadership…A Human Endeavor: Observations from 32 Years in the Air Force and Joint Special Operations Community

with Major General Stephen Clark

After an extensive career in military leadership positions, Major General Stephen Clark knows there's a compelling distinction between a quality manager and a high-performing leader. At their extremes, people are compelled to follow managers because they have to, while they willingly follow leaders because they want to.

As such, highly effective leaders understand that true leadership is a human endeavor and requires understanding the aspirations, motivations and abilities of individuals and the development of an empathetic relationship. At the core of servant leadership is the belief that if we take care of our people, they will take care of the business. Key to building relationships is the ability to clearly communicate the vision, values and limitations that we expect our businesses to operate within through actions, words and behavior. Making the transition from manager to leader is a journey of experience, learning, failure and introspection…along with a heavy dose of courage and humility.
