John Kotter pointed out in his book, Leading Change, that our nation turned its focus towards developing managers instead of leaders, because that is what we needed as factory workers. This is also an issues we have in the military. There are SNCOs and officers who would rather us toe the line and ‘manage’ our teams. We need to break this mold and learn to develop leaders. We simply can’t expect to have great leaders if we wait until they are SNCOs before we give them leadership opportunities.
