Mr Woodall offered us this description of ‘The Art Of Warrior Leadership’:
As I look around the world today it is easy to identify lots of problems. Pointing to a problem and complaining loudly is easy; fixing the problem is hard. In the military and later in my law enforcement career I was taught a basic code on how to conduct myself. These principles are the foundation that I choose to live by today. Imagine what could be accomplished if today’s leaders whether they wear a uniform or civilian clothes lived by just these six fundamental character traits.
Anyone who has ever thought of leadership is easy has never been confronted with a complex ethical dilemma. People, problems, and situations are a difficult and it is rare when a decision does not have some negative consequences for somebody or something. Doing the right thing and making hard decisions is what leaders get paid for. Never forget that leadership is a privilege. These six words need to be more than just suggestions, much more. To all the warrior leaders out there, stay safe and be value added every day. The world needs you now more than ever.
