[September 3, 2013] Why publish a blog on “senior executive leadership”? With so many high-quality blogs on leadership and thousands of pages written on the internet and in books, why would anyone want to add to those voices? Simple, I do not believe there is sufficient writing dedicated to the subject of senior executive leadership. One reason for this is easy to understand; we don’t want to get our fingers burned by appearing to criticize our peers. While the focus of this blog is about civilian and military senior leaders, it certainly applies to other levels of leadership. The blog should be helpful to people in all positions where leadership is required. Our junior leaders will find the discussions especially valuable.
