My philosophy of leadership is to develop and promote strong character traits as well as physical skills. Exercise always produces an increase in strength, and practice produces skill and confidence. Exercising self-discipline, responsibility, pride in accomplishment, dedication, and team loyalty, produces strength in these areas also. Some may have more natural ability, but all individuals have the potential. I see the development of that potential as an essential element of leadership. I believe that the best leaders are those who not only organize and motivate personnel, but also evoke their best efforts, ability, and desire in a continuing growth process. Any leader who is able to produce leaders is a strong leader. He or she has been given a special gift and has a responsibility to use it. Recognition is not an issue. Responsibility is.
