“I do not intend for ‘honor, courage, and commitment’ to be just words; I expect them to frame the way that we live and act.”
–Charles C. Krulak (1942 – )
31st Commandant of the U.S. Marine Corps
If asked, what would you and your team say are your core values?
In the U.S. Marine Corps publication, “Sustaining the Transformation” (pdf), their’s are listed as Honor – Courage – Commitment. If you lead a team, the foreword (at a minimum) by General Krulak is time well-spent. It, along with the Fortune story “From Wharton to War“, is great leadership inspiration for creating a special team of people (and that’s what you want as a leader… isn’t it?).
So many great teamwork points in the Fortune piece (love the “bino” request).
Imagine if we could approach our work in the civilian world with the same commitment.
