What kind of leader are you?

Posted August 24, 2012 by by Master Sgt. CAMERON JOHNSON

What type of leader are you? Have you ever stopped to ask yourself the question, “What type of leader am I?” If so, how would you answer? Would you say you’re a team leader, a motivator or a person who inspires? Better yet, if your Airmen were asked what kind of leader you were, what…

Posted August 24, 2012 by by Jayson Burns and Denise Wilhite

While not as numerous or historic as the Bond films, the Bourne series has become an example of how secret agent movies are done right.
