Common Sense

Fired

From the Air Force Times: 

 https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/your-air-force/2017/12/07/air-force-fired-commander-tried-to-hide-relationship-with-enlisted-airman/

Unfortunately what was reported in the article has happened before in all the military branches. Leadership is a privilege and a responsibility. For someone like this Lt.Col to misuse that position is a disgrace to the Air Force.

There are several lessons learned from this incident:

  • The group commander took appropriate action
  • There is a serious question why this person was even selected for command
  • There is the question of why this person was promoted to 0-5
  • Some where along the line….the common sense test was overlooked

The bottom line: Any business/organization has to find the right people (Jim Collins – get the right people on the right bus going in the same direction). Don’t settle for anything less.
