Joe Boutte's insight:
Uncommon sense, as described in this article, reminds me of emotional intelligence.  Great every day leaders sense and understand their environment and listen to the people's concerns, goals, and ideas.  The ability to integrate the feedback, assess the environment each day, and develop new processes, solutions, and ideas creates innovative workplaces.  Uncommon sense is boundless when the focus is on people.

The Difference Between a Leader and a Boss

The Difference Between a Leader and a Boss | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
While the two may seem similar, they're actually opposites.
Joe Boutte's insight:
Leaders establish a vision, create influence, and ensure positive outcomes.  Bosses are leaders when they do what leaders do.

"A leader understands that the people he or she works with are essential to an organization’s success, treating them as equals and providing them with helpful direction. Bosses, on the other hand, give out orders and view employees as disposable inferiors."

Home - Red Tail Squadron

Home - Red Tail Squadron | Everyday Leadership | Scoop.it
The African Americans who would become known as the Tuskegee Airmen wanted to fight for freedom as pilots during World War II.
Joe Boutte's insight:
I recently joined the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Red Tail Squadron to promote the history, leadership, and legacy of the great Americans who became known as the Tuskegee Airman. One of the major missions of the CAF Red Tail Squadron is to educate audiences across the country about the history and legacy of the Tuskegee Airmen – America’s first black military pilots and their support personnel – so their strength of character, courage and ability to triumph over adversity may serve as a means to inspire others to #RISEABOVE obstacles in their own lives and achieve their goals.

Six guiding principles based on the lives and lessons of the Tuskegee Airmen are important for new generations of leaders to know.  The six principles are beneficial for mature leaders, youth, and anyone striving to serve, lead, and make a difference.

1. Aim High – The men who became known as the Tuskegee Airmen had one goal: They wanted to fight for freedom during World War II. What made them different from the thousands of other men with the same patriotic zeal was that they were black at a time when the U.S. military had no black pilots. 

2. Believe In Yourself – In the 1940s, the ignorance of segregation and racial prejudice were a big part of the American landscape. That meant the U.S. military would not give black men a chance to train as pilots. As the country geared for war, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was pressured to change that. In 1941, he ordered the Army Air Corps to set up a program. A segregated flight training base called Moton Airfield was built in Tuskegee, Alabama. The new flight training program at Tuskegee was not expected to succeed. 

3. Use Your Brain – Like many military flight cadets, the young men who applied for flight training at Tuskegee were smart. Many had attended college and earned degrees. But it wasn’t easy to get through the program. The first class at Tuskegee had 13 cadets and only five earned their wings. In all, just 996 pilots made it through the Tuskegee program from 1941 to 1945. They learned the skills necessary to be excellent pilots and gained new life skills as well. 

4. Never Quit – While in Alabama, they had to live with signs on drinking fountains and theater doors that segregated people into “White” and “Colored.” These black officers had to ignore the insults. They learned to rise above this ignorance and focus on the mission. 

5.  Be Ready To Go – The Tuskegee Airmen were sent to North Africa and then to Italy to support the Allies’ push into Nazi Germany. From June 1943 until April 1945, 450 Tuskegee-trained pilots flew more than 1500 combat sorties. They flew many kinds of missions, but it was as bomber escorts that the Tuskegee Airmen are most remembered. The 332nd Fighter Group had the tails of their airplanes painted red and soon the white bomber pilots began requesting the “red tail angels” because the Airmen were such skilled pilots and fierce fighters. 

6. Expect To Win – As the Tuskegee Airmen destroyed the enemy, they also destroyed the belief that a man should be judged by the color of his skin. Their excellence helped to educate military leaders which resulted in the desegregation of all branches of the U.S. military in 1948.
