Mr. Bernard D. Dyer

I have a simple philosophy of leadership: treat everybody as I would like to be treated, listen to your people, set the example, let subordinates make decisions, but be ready and willing to make the hard decisions. I don’t know everything nor is my way the best way all the time, so I make sure I listen to someone else’s ideas and suggestions. On the same token, I do realize that I have 19 years of experience in line and staff units so I may know a better way. However, it’s important that I present this to my subordinates in a fashion that does not denigrate their confidence or enthusiasm. I encourage new ideas, I try to challenge people and I think they respond accordingly.
