Mahaney posts four tenets of leadership

  • Published
  • By Brig. Gen. Samuel "Bo" Mahaney
  • Air Reserve Personnel Center Public Affairs

ONE: If you take care of your people, they will take care of the mission
"As leaders, our people are our mission. There is nothing we can accomplish without first caring for our folks."

TWO: Foster a culture of respect
"Respect for people, their passions, their purpose and their position is the foundation for solid unit cohesion."

THREE: Expectation of excellence
"Besides being one of our Air Force core values, excellence is a universal standard by which all our activities should be measured."

FOUR: Foster a culture of feedback
"We can't know how effective our leadership is unless we ask and really listen to what our folks are saying."
