Global Leadership Summit: Lieutenant Colonel Mark Schmidt's story

Posted by Todd Naevestad on

Can you be a leader not just for results, but for the wellbeing of your people? 

Lieutenant Colonel Mark "Kaiser" Schmidt needed to answer that question as he saw so many of his wingmen becoming great pilots but empty people. When given the assignment of Commander of the 435th Fighter Training Squadron, Schmidt took it as a chance to change from the Leader/Follower model to his Leader/Leader model: leaders training other leaders.

“We are going to make you a better fighter pilot, a better instructor, a better husband, a better father; I'm going to make you a better leader.”

Are you ready to be a better leader? Register today for the Global Leadership Summit in our Worship Center, August 9-10.
