Default Air Force Logo We're all Airmen, Wingmen
We hear a lot of buzz words these days. Sometimes, one might think higher headquarters has a think tank whose sole job is to come up with the latest catch phrase. As I reflect on my past 24 years in the Air Force, I recall various buzz words that have floated around our Service. Can anyone remember when the term "force multiplier" was the latest

Chief Master Sgt. Clifton G. Cole It Starts with Leadership
A definition of leadership is "the art of influencing and directing people to accomplish the mission." Some people ask, "Where have the good leaders gone?" We read books about leaders and leadership; many take on the leadership style of others before them. Does leadership start while we are young, or do we have to wait until we are grown to be

Default Air Force Logo Benefits of attribution to office dialogue
A good journalist will discern between fact and opinion when presenting a complete picture of an issue, story or event. So will a good Airman, I think. Everyone has an opinion, so the old adage goes. Whether it's regarding office policy or current events, finding someone to express their view is seldom difficult. Believing in an opinion and

Default Air Force Logo Motivation built from recognition
"Worker dead at desk for five days" This was the headline to an article I received last summer, supposedly from the "New York Times." In the article it described a 30-year employee who had a heart attack while sitting at his desk in an open-plan office he shared with 23 co-workers. Beyond the sadness of the death and that no one noticed, the

Default Air Force Logo Success is in training
Nothing drives me crazy like asking a person a question and being told, "I don't know and the person who does know is gone." The first thought I have is, "All these people and only one person knows the answer. Why even have other people in the office?"

Default Air Force Logo New Year's resolutions for Team Ellsworth
With every New Year comes the opportunity to make a resolution to improve ourselves. This long-lived tradition has several interesting and historical roots. The ancient Persians gave family and loved ones eggs for the New Year to symbolize productivity. Before the Roman invasion, the Celtic priests of what we now know as England gave members of
