“It takes two flints to make a fire.” – Louisa May Alcott
Relationships are to leadership as bread is to a sandwich....it's what keeps it all together. However, it today's busy world we tend to focus in on the relationship first and, instead, focus in on the mission.
On this episode, I get to talk to fellow military leader and retiree, Jack McGuinness. Jack is a West Point graduate and learned much of his leadership trade in the trenches (like I did) with other military people. Jack and I talk about teamwork and leadership relationships this week and I know you're going to dig our conversation as much as I did.
