Modeling Achievement...Major General Donna W. Martin __________________________________ Today we feature military trailblazer, Major General Donna W. Martin. She is one of 71 women generals and admirals serving in active duty in the military. Women in these senior leadership positions represent 7.5% of the total 939 active duty general and admirals, so she is in a rarefied group. Although she has broken the glass ceiling by being named the first woman to assume command of the Fort Leonard Wood Training Installation in Missouri, she doesn't consider herself a trailblazer. Hence the quote above. She wants other women who desire a career in the military to see her as a model of the opportunities and possibilities that are available to them. In August 2018, Martin was promoted from Brigadier General (One Star) to Major General (Two Star) in a ceremony at Fort Leonard Wood. The Army training base includes engineering, chemical and military police specialities and the General Leonard Wood Army Community Hospital, a facility that will be replaced by a new $100 million modern hospital in the next few years. Major General Martin will oversee..." To read more, click the link in the Bio.

John Maxwell, an author and guru on leadership, defined leadership as influence. So if leadership is influence, every leader must be willing to grow and learn new things in order to increase their knowledge and ability to influence those around her/him through their leadership. Betsy Beers said in an Shondaland article we posted on at @LeadershipTues on Twitter (See Career Advice from Betsy Beers, 11/28/18) that we can't be afraid to admit our knowledge gaps. Good leaders are constantly learning. Tell us, how are you growing yourself as a leader and what resources are you using? You can also follow @LeadershipTues on Twitter for resources to develop and strengthen your leadership skills. You'll also learn from others who are successful leaders. Click the link in bio.

#LeadershipTuesdays: Stand Up and Be Counted...Robert F. Kennedy | “It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man [woman] stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he [she] sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” https://motivationalmoments-vwo.blogspot.com/2018/11/stand-up-and-be-countedrobert-f-kennedy.html?m=1 #Vote #Midterms2018 #ElectionDay #BeAVoter #VoteAmerica #MotivationalMoment
Your Example Teaches More than Your Words...R.A. Stratton | Moral leadership is neither Democrat nor Republican. It is not relative or based in public opinion. Moral leadership is based on a set of values and principles that guides our behavior toward others. We are in need of leaders who will set an example. Vote for candidates whose morality is not based on or influenced by campaign donors or contributions. Don't just listen to their words, hear their heart and check out their past actions because actions speak louder than words. Do not just vote for individuals because of their party affiliation because no one party has a lock on morality. Please do your civic duty and vote. Your vote is important. If you are a minority and or a woman, people died so that you could be enfranchised and vote. Honor them with your vote. You can see a sample ballot for your state or county/district by going to ballotpedia.org and clicking on your state. By viewing a sample ballot, you can see the candidates and issues on the ballot before you vote. You can also "google" this information. According to Pew Research, the vast majority of Americans – 95% – now own a cellphone of some kind and 77% own smartphones. Use your smartphone to google your sample ballot and be informed. Early voting is open right now in a lot of states, check your State Election commission to see where you can vote early. If you can't vote early, plan today how you will get to the polls next Tuesday. You voting demomstrates your leadership in your community, so do your part to change America for the better by voting.
