The Power of Observation Illuminates the Path of Moral Leadership
“There’s no one right way to lead,” says retired General Janet Wolfenbarger, a trailblazing leader in the U.S. military. In 1980, she graduated from the Air Force Academy in the first class to include women and went on to become the first woman in the Air Force to receive four stars. Janet says although there are many paths to moral leadership, watching and listening to others guided her, “The biggest teacher for me of a good leader came from observing people in leadership roles. Understanding what approaches, character traits, and values were articulated, how they worked and, in some cases, didn’t work.” Janet spoke to HOW Institute Fellow, Dana Born, in this latest episode of HOW Conversations.
