I’m very excited to announce that I’ll be speaking at the San Antonio chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals’ Annual Conference on Thurs, February 21, 2013.
I’ll be presenting two sessions on my leadership philosophy, a character-based and time tested system that anchors any team-building effort and is guaranteed to improve morale, the work environment, and productivity! I’ve developed this system during over 25 years of military service, including commanding three squadrons and a 1,900 member group.
My Start Here: leadership philosophy is summarized in five “bricks” of the foundation to any leadership task: Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Leaders Lead, and Little Things Matter.
See you in the Alamo City!
This week I continue my discussion on leadership with CMSgt(ret) Bob Vasquez on KAFA 97.7 FM. This week’s topic is “Leaders Lead” where I talk about taking charge when you’re put in a leadership position.
Listen live here, or find us on iTunes.
I’m back on KAFA-FM’s Character Matters! with Chief Master Sergeant (retired) Bob Vasquez to discuss leadership…this week’s topic is “Respect.” You can listen online at the Association of Graduate’s website.
Well…the first draft is complete! I’ve got some editing to do, then I’ll ask reviewers to take their first look as well. Still have to work on the title, though, Start Here is still the working title…for now!
You can listen starting today! The first topic is “Integrity”, and they started with my senior picture from my Aggie Corps days. Join us tonight at 8pm on 97.7 KAFA-FM for a preview of my new book “Start Here” (still a working title!).
I’m very excited to be appearing on USAFA’s KAFA-FM starting this Wednesday (16 Jan) in a four-part series based on my leadership philosophy. It was fun to spend a couple of hours with Chief Master Sergeant (retired) Bob Vasquez recording the series and I’m looking forward to hearing the finished product. While you’re at it, check out KAFA’s Facebook page, and follow them on Twitter.
It will be a preview of my upcoming book, Start Here: the Foundation of Leadership and it’s the same philosophy that I’ve developed over the years from Cub Scouts, high school sports, military college, and a 25 year Air Force career. I’ve distilled a lifetime of leadership experience into a “cornerstone” and “bricks” in the “foundation” of good leadership: Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Leaders Lead, and Little Things Matter.
Should be a great series and introduction to the book! Listen online at www.usafa.org/kafa courtesy of the USAFA Association of Graduates.
I’m proud to announce that my third book, a leadership primer with a working title of “Start Here: The Foundation of Leadership” is nearing completion. I’m hoping to send it to the printer before June 2013. Watch this space for updates!
The first two books by Mickey Addison are now available online in the Lulu Marketplace, for the Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader, and on iTunes here and here.
For God and Country: Saturday Morning Notes for a Monday Morning World is a collection of short articles and essays covering contemporary topics for American Catholics. This book comes from a personal experience of the Catholic Faith with simple explanations of the basics of the faith. Commandments to Sacraments, precepts to politics, this book is a useful resource for Catholics seeking to live out their faith in the world, without being swallowed by it.
Saturday Morning Catechism, a companion to For God and Country, is a collection of short articles for the parish catechist, or just for someone seeking a little information about what Catholics believe. Easy to digest explanations in plain language, this book is a terrific resource for study groups, RCIA, Bible Study, or even the casual reader.
