Mr. Michael J. Willie

My philosophy of leadership is a very simple one. “Don’t ask anyone to do anything that you wouldn’t do youself.” A leader is someone who walks into a room and says “we” have a lot of things to get done today. If you assist your people in getting these tasks completed, you will gain miles of respect from them. A respected leader goes out and gets dirty with the people that work for him or her. It is my belief that once you get all of your responsibilities taken care of as the Officer in Charge, always make sure that you go out and help with the rest of the work. If they are a good crew, you will only have to go out and help them once. They would be too embarrassed to let it happen again.
