It's time to play BIG and create an action plan that works FOR you, not against you.
Let me share a story with you...
There is one person who made the single, most impactful impression on me that gave me direction, vision, and purpose.
The fashionable girl on the left... that's me. A young girl from a small Montana town, unsure about her future.
The guy with the aviator glasses, that's my big brother Joe. He was 18 years old at the time, and had just completed Air Force Training.
I remember my brother as a rebellious teen, somewhat of an outcast, and making bad decisions when he graduated High School.
My brother was not the kind of person I looked up to until...the day he returned home after joining the Air Force. I immediately saw a man and was in awe.
Joe carried himself differently, he had a sense of pride in himself and what he represented.
From that day forward, at the age of 16, I knew I wanted to join the Air Force and do something completely different from my classmates, travel the world, have a career serving my country and follow in the footsteps of my big brother.
...and that's exactly what I did.
I joined the U.S. Air Force and served in multiple combat deployments around the world including Panama, Korea, Macedonia, Jordan, and Iraq.
I served in the Gulf War, the War on Terror and the Iraq War. I was deployed to the Republic of Panama to aid Cuban refugees, Air Expeditionary Forces II in Shaheed Mwaffaq Air Base in Jordan, the Republic of Macedonia to help maintain peace between the National Liberation Army and the Macedonia Army after the Kosovo War, and Joint Balad Air Base in Iraq.
Deployments were rough.
Sometimes we didn’t know when we were going to be going home or, if we had a date, it was changed.
Our leaders kept us motivated and focused. We knew we had a job to do and other people counted on us. So, we focused on that.
Military leaders are trained to lead and inspire a team.
Whether it's from behind enemy lines or while on a mission that seemingly has no end in sight.
They need to have the confidence that they can overcome any obstacle so those under their command never lose hope.
They know that in order to be successful, they need a strategy.
They also know that every plan is fluid and will ultimately change with the dynamics of any given mission or battle scenario, requiring them to stay agile so they are prepared for anything that is thrown their way.
They understand the concept of a legacy and they know that their actions on a daily basis impact what type of legacy they leave behind.
After serving for over 20 years, I retired from the Air Force as a decorated U.S. Veteran. My final assignment was at the Air Force Personnel Center as Air Force Separations Branch Superintendent where I had the privilege of leading 35 dynamic team members.
It was truly one of the best and most self-actualizing positions within my Air Force career. I was named Outstanding Personnel Manager of the Year, competing against thousands of others in uniform.
Serving in the U.S. Air Force molded me into the business professional I am today. It gave me structure, discipline, high standards and expectations, integrity, respect for others, vision, goals, determination, physical readiness, mentorship, leadership, and knowledge that there is something bigger than myself, the opportunity to serve a cause—my country, an understanding that it takes a team of people working towards a common cause for extraordinary results, and so much more.
I knew I had to share this foundational knowledge and military leadership skillset with others in the business world. So, armed with an MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management, I transitioned into entrepreneurship, where I became a World Coaching Institute (WCI) Certified, Professional and Executive Coach, speaker, consultant, and corporate trainer.
I enjoy sharing my story and experiences with audiences around the world as a keynote speaker, and participate in programs to help veterans find employment when they leave the military.

This lead to the formation of the 360 Legacy Leadership™ Program.
A comprehensive, online group coaching and accountability program for executive leaders who are action-oriented and want proven, expert guidance to achieve sustainable leadership and personal transformation within their company and in themselves.
Every leader has an obligation to be the very best leader possible.
In today's business environment where work-life balance is more important than ever before—leaders need support not just during working hours but also personally outside of the workplace so they can maintain healthy lifestyles while being effective at their jobs.
The 360 Legacy Leadership™ Program is designed to help leaders continually learn new techniques and refine their leadership skills over time. Whether you are feeling a bit lost after stepping up to a new position or after decades of experience you feel like you need to keep on top of your game and give yourself a competitive edge, this program is for you. Training and coaching is provided in a group environment, making it as accessible and affordable as possible.
Constant Leadership Development
After 21 years in the military, I can tell you that one thing you're always doing is learning. Constant leadership development is instilled in us from the moment we enter service. It's our responsibility to keep up with current training. We had to attend specific training classes in order to be promoted and work our way up the ranks of career advancement from airmen to senior non-commissioned officer and beyond.
In business, leadership development is always on-going too as you move up the corporate ladder from middle to senior management. Leaders need new skills and knowledge all of the time because change is constant. But that's not a bad thing because change is what drives us to be better and do more than we thought possible. Constant learning will give you a competitive edge.
The 360 Legacy Leadership™ Program is designed to help leaders learn new techniques and refine their leadership skills.
I'm excited about this program because it is designed with the leader in mind—no matter what stage of leadership you're at or where you might be working, the 360 Legacy Leadership™ Program will provide you with the tools, resources, and coaching to help you refine your leadership skills and keep you competitive now and into the future.
The U.S. military operates on many of the same fundamental elements that make corporations successful. They are impressively effective - which is why so many CEOs have had a stint in the military before becoming corporate leaders themselves.
I bring these elements to business leaders in the civilian world, having coached hundreds of business executives, managers, and team members on leadership development.
By adapting the lessons learned in combat, I crafted the PRACTICAL Leader Framework™, which is a set of nine key pillar principals that have been battle-tested in the trenches of business leadership.
I have been applying my military-inspired framework over the past decade with executive clients around the world, and the results have been extraordinary.
The framework is a trusted, go-to resource for organizations that want to create high performing teams and individual leaders who can handle any challenge thrown their way by today's rapidly changing world.
It consists of nine key pillar principals that make for success in any environment:
Accountability (high expectations)
The more we all understand these principles—and how they work together to ensure success—the greater chance we, as legacy leaders, can make strategic decisions that enhance ourselves as individuals and our organization, while building strong communities with a sense of purpose.
The P.R.A.C.T.I.C.A.L. Leader Framework™
Purpose: Identifying and establishing what matters most for us; this will help you to be more decisive. The clearer your sense of purpose, the clearer you will be on what is important and how to get there. A clear sense of purpose will also help you to make decisions faster and with more confidence. Personal confidence is powerful—stand taller, walk with intention, speak with purpose, and always hold your head up high. As a leader, it’s also important to realize that it’s not just about you anymore, and that makes you think and act differently. Set the tone for your team and make sure that they understand their specific purpose.
Resilience: Being resilient means being prepared for anything—and I mean anything! This includes problems with people, logistics, timelines or other external factors you might not have anticipated. No one knows what tomorrow brings—it could be something completely unexpected. You need to know how to respond, improvise and adapt. Soldiers learn early on that things don't always go according to plan, and they need to anticipate problems before they arise. It also entails knowing how and when to improvise so the plan doesn’t fall apart at a critical moment because of something outside your control. This skill translates into the ability as an entrepreneur or leader to adjust quickly while staying mindful of your goals. The key is to be able to respond promptly with an appropriate solution, bounce back from challenges, and maintain focus on the larger objectives and desired outcomes.
Accountability: People are always watching—your actions can impact a life in ways unimaginable. Holding yourself accountable for what you say, do, or don’t do, as well as knowing your responsibilities and who depends on you is critical as a leader. For each task we need to know exactly how much time is needed, what the next steps are, who needs to do them, and when they can start and stop doing the task. It's also about making sure that each member of the team knows what’s expected from them as well as recognizing when they need help—and asking for it from someone else (which isn't always easy).
Conflict Resolution: One of the most important aspects of leadership is resolving conflict—on both small and large scales; it could be anything from managing disagreements between team members to negotiating peace agreements with hostile nations! Conflict resolution requires patience, empathy, creativity, integrity, listening skills and problem solving abilities—and knowing who not to take advice from!
Trust: Trust is the foundation of any good relationship. It's about knowing you can count on someone else to do what they say, when they say it will be done and that their work quality is solid. You don't need to micromanage people with trust—just make sure everyone understands what’s expected from them (and give feedback if needed). As a leader, it's also important to trust and have faith in your own abilities, believing you'll succeed regardless of how difficult things may seem at times—because nothing worthwhile ever comes easy! It also involves staying calm under pressure; it's important to maintain a cool head in order to make sound decisions.
Introspection: This skill helps us stay grounded during tough times by reminding ourselves of our true values so we don’t lose sight of them when things get stressful. In the military, being self-aware is important because it helps soldiers know how far to push themselves and when they need to step back. It also helps us understand what we are and aren't willing to do. Self-awareness is challenging, but critical to master. It’s not about being perfect or knowing everything; it’s more about understanding our strengths and weaknesses so that we can create an action plan with short-, medium-, and long-term objectives to achieve those goals. The benefits of having this skill are endless: from managing stress levels, decision making skills, better relationships at work—it even impacts how we feel physically!
Communication: Solid communication skills are critical to success in both military leadership and entrepreneurship. Clear communication allows for more effective decision-making, better compliance with orders, and the ability to evaluate those orders against the company's goals and objectives. Clear communication should be one of your top priorities as a leader, regardless of the size of the organization: from small start-ups to large corporations or governments, the benefits of clear communication are the same.
Adaptability: Adaptable leaders can think outside-the-box and take risks where others might hesitate—it means being comfortable with change, constantly seeking new opportunities, and remaining open minded about ideas even if they seem unconventional.
Leverage: Leveraging the skills and interests of those around you can help an organization grow more quickly, make better decisions, and perform at a higher level. The ability to pull people together for one common goal can increase the efficiency of any organization, but it can also help people work together more comfortably. In the military, this is called a “task force”, a diverse group of individuals from different backgrounds, with distinct skills and specialties who are brought in to support a particular mission. Similarly, business executives assemble group of individuals from different backgrounds for projects, considering their individual strengths needed to best execute the mission at hand.
Using these nine pillars as our core foundation, 360 Legacy Leadership™ members will explore how to become better leaders by learning how to lead themselves first, then their team, and finally their organization.
