Lead, Follow or Get Out of The Way

by Ed Keener

That was the motto that greeted me to my Basic Military Training Squadron, the 3707th, in October of 1988. I was 19 years old at the time riding in a blue bus along with a bunch of other fresh recruits. Most of them had enlisted in the Air Force while I chose to enlist in the Alaska Air National Guard. Even so, the same training was required. Lead, follow or get out of the way. I pondered upon those words while waiting to disembark the bus. Some people seemed naturally endowed with leadership qualities while others work overtime to develop leadership know-how; but what is it to be a great leader? What’s the “right stuff”? Some would cite a take-charge attitude, or a magnetic, charismatic personality, or one that exudes an aura of authority commanding respect of those around them. While these are certainly valuable assets for leadership, I submit that what makes a great leader is the heart of a servant.

I am a Christian. I mention this because to understand a little about who I am you must first know Whose I am. My Christian faith is an integral and inseparable part of me that influences my philosophy, thought process, and decision making.
