An administrator examines the war colleges and the joint professional military education institutions and calls on the schools to employ the optimal mix of military and civilian faculty to encourage the rise of new thinking in vital areas and...
This was my attempt to provide some additional perspective to the debate about the relevancy and effectiveness of the war colleges. I wanted to share some insights from having been a student and faculty member in the system of professional military education as well as a faculty member and administrator in non-military settings. I hope it provokes some discussion, especially with regard to policies and procedures relating to the faculty.
Here's a nice summary of some of my thoughts on Toxic Leadership by my friend and ace San Diego Fire Chief, Brian Fennessy. I think he knows my work better than I do. I love it when insights like these cross contexts.
Jean Lipman-Blumen is a wonderful person and a world-class scholar. This interview was part of a graduate course where the students prepared the questions and introductions while I played the host. They read her work before the class. We later turned off the lights and camera and engaged in a wonderful dialogue.

I am a fan of this sort of information graphic. I suspect most of us that learn visually are.
Employee turnover is a fact of life. And as it turns out, not even the most in-demand employers are immune.
Talent management and personnel management are not the same thing. Attracting and retaining talent is requires a creative, proactive, and personalized process. Most personnel systems lack the agility to do that well.
The greatest leaders are the ones who run organizations that truly care for their employees’ and customers’ health, happiness, and wellbeing.
Great leadership is probably a combination of situation and individual contributions. Where, for example, would Lincoln have been without the American Civil War? Does the crucible of the situation make the leader or does the leader transcend the situation?
Quartz How successful people overcome toxic bosses Quartz Bad bosses contaminate the workplace. Some do so obliviously, while others smugly manipulate their employees, using them as instruments of their own success.
We should remember that we are all part of the systems in which we live. While it may be attractive to blame toxic behavior solely on the boss, we have the opportunity and indeed the responsibility to make it better rather than worse.
Horrible bosses come in all shapes and sizes. You can probably think of a few previous bosses you’ve had the (dis)pleasure to work for.
I get this question frequently. "How do I know if I am toxic?" Since toxicity is determined by impact on the organization you have to ask your team the right questions. Since reality is in the eye of the beholder, if most of your team perceives you as toxic, you win the toxic leader badge that nobody really wants.
How many of us can relate to the movie Office Space and the infamous boss Bill Lumbergh? Most people would say that they can easily point to a boss that they currently have or have had who could have served as a role model for the movie character....
Office Space is a movie that I use in my repertoire of leadership (or anti-leadership) films.
It’s Friday afternoon and one of your employees asks for a private meeting. Before you even close the door, she tells you she’s found another job and is leaving the company. Once you get over the shock, how should you respond?
Do not expect an employee to give you a straight answer during and exit interview. This is a place where it is appropriate to be sensitive to weak signals. Even those who are very disenchanted have a tendency to approach their exit with a sense of "let bygones be bygones."
According to the Harvard Confidence in Leadership Index, the military is the one segment of American society in which most Americans report a high degree of confidence. They are clearly doing something right, and that probably includes a process for leader development.
