In way of explanation, my tag line is an adaptation of a now favorite quote:
“Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way”
— General George Patton
I did not realize it at the time, but I had this concept drummed into my head in 1971 at Fort Knox, KY. As a trooper in Advanced Individual Training (AIT), training to become an armored recon scout, it was our class motto. “Delta Devils – 5 Recon, Lead, Follow, or get the H*ll out of the way” was screamed in unison each time we took our seats for instruction. At that time I realized we were building pride in our unit, D/5R/2, designating D Troop, 5th Squadron, 2nd Training Brigade. No one explained that General Patton, the father of armor had coined the phase years before.
Currently working in healthcare as the VP of Facilities Development for a large long term care facility in northern New Jersey. Recently became certified by John Maxwell to coach, train, and speak using his material. This has led to working with individuals and organizations wanting to raise their level of leadership and over all performance. Finding that to be a real passion, the blog / web site has become a platform to share thoughts and resources that have been found to be helpful.
