"To Fisher house foundation which to date has donated almost half a million Bucks it's just one of the many ways that we can support our troops and veterans visit sprint dot com slash military for the details okay yeah we're talking about leadership and its leadership from your perspective as both a marine officer an attorney in civilian life so you've been a leader in two different environments and your book is helping listeners readers take real leadership which you use in the marines and apply those same principles in civilian life and it works there is that a fair summary of where we come so far yes Sir that's kind of how are you looking around I noticed you know I'm a trial lawyer now and have been for twenty four years but I know this sort of subconsciously that I was using a lot of these techniques not only leadership principles but the principles of war which are also in my book and I noticed that I was having some significant success White Plains and secular I mean things like the concepts of mass and tempo and decision making that was a marine officer we knew secondhand but which I have been applying to this so that was really the genesis of the book and people very much enjoyed hearing about these concepts that they had never been exposed to and my first article was called channeling your inner Napoleon and then discuss the principles of war and actually mentioned out of holy and never really actually develop very many new tactical or strategic concepts but his brother was in understanding and learning all of those different techniques which he had studied as a young man and knowing when to apply those in his various campaigns and so when we put these concepts together I wanted people to know it's sort of the same philosophy terms of when and how you can apply the tools and the methods of the principles that are being discussed they're not all applicable to the same time you have to understand like tools in the toolbox you take it out when the right situation arise you know that's very very true one size does not fit all but there are some principles that fit all really caring for your people really understanding your mission really being able to give of yourself instead of just and watch there are principles that apply everywhere but many actions don't and that's where we're going with this system yes it also not in the same way that you just mentioned it to start off talking about leadership traits which are all the characters that we expect the marines to have these are things like justice judgment dependability integrity decisiveness initiative things like that we try to instill in marines and to awaken in them when the moment there are what goes on to discuss leadership principles which are more well to N. C. O. N. officers and people have genes that they need to leave and there were talking about concepts like knowing yourself seeking self improvement being technically and tactically proficient knowing your people looking out for their welfare setting the example yeah insuring that tasks are understood supervised bottles we can employ as we prepare our units for combat or not in the civilian world prepare our teens your success or whatever battlefield it is and we fight and that's our responsibility this is Carol Denney Allman from as a freedom we're talking leadership with that produce yeah everybody can be a good leader I think it's a principle that to be a good leader you first must know how to be a good follower and we don't all have to be alike you don't have to be a Douglas McArthur or a chesty puller or a Ronald Reagan or somebody like that you can be yourself you can still be a leader but you need to know how to follow first is that a fair statement that's right you know the best leaders are the ones who been there before and you know as I'm sure you're aware when you are an officer you know you have to go through basic training essentially just like all the other soldiers and marines that you're expected to lead to some so everywhere they are gone you have been yeah you know you're supposed to be all the things that you're expecting your marines yeah so we artillery no we don't handle fuses on the shelves anymore as officers there was a time when we had to do all new out of yeah but a leader is also good follower one as you know relates to the chain of command you may be able to hear what you have to report to your company and he also is reported falling as a different techniques and different skill sets operating as a leader and then when you're operating as a support and so you have to understand the relationship between a lot of you know some of that interestingly enough comes into play when we talk about initiative and providing the commander's intent American fighting men and women one of our strengths is that we as Americans take initiative we are not all the time in the absence of orders if we know what our commander's intent is one of our great strange historically has been the ability to improvise and to lead when our immediate leadership supervisors are down or injured yeah well said my friend well said we've got a couple of minutes left here take some time now talk about your book was look like what it's not available yet it won't be available till I think next month the talk about the book and how people can get a copy I'm sure listeners are going to want to get one I hope they do thanks very much yes the mall as you mentioned the little green leadership manual for professionals it'll be listed under my last name producer which is like the chickens not like the school P. E. R. D. you eat or be available on my website which is W. W. W. do log group dot com it will also be available on Amazon but her belief through my website where readers or listeners are interested they can check a box and I'll provide them with a signed copy so that's available through the website and as you said earlier will be available roughly in mid may so start looking forward around maybe fifteen you should get it back from her at that time we are ready to go out I do recommend the book and by the way listeners know that I just published a book my co host and I did it on front lines of freedom this is a perfect supplement to that book because we talk about the need for leadership this talks about the leadership so if you like from one to freedom you're gonna like the little green book and it's Purdue law group dot com yeah thank you for taking time to join us today thank you for your service to our nation proud to call you friend thank you Sir turn up next we're going to discuss the commanders group an interesting group of people that will open our weekly mail back the scrutiny Gilman from much of freedom group.

"Take the the the family programs that were involved with with either the warrior games the INVICTUS Games <hes> all of these families played a role in in their loved ones recovery <hes> and you know when you think about and this is the way I explained it to people who are not aware of of the service and sacrifice I I asked quite frankly. How would you feel if you're in the hospital and your family couldn't afford to visit so you know it becomes very easy? <hes> <hes> to kind of you know kind of let people know what's going on and you know so the families love is the best medicine of all the absolute truth.
