KAFA-FM Character Matters! with Bob Vasquez

Four-part series with KAFA-FM’s Character Matters! with Bob Vasquez.


In 2013, I was pleased to be featured in a 4-part series on a radio show called Character Matters! with Bob Vasquez the US Air Force Academy’s KAFA-FM radio. CMSgt (ret) Bob Vasquez was a fabulous host, and we had a great conversation about leadership. You can subscribe to his feed on SoundCloud here.

We talked about my Leading Leaders philosophy: Integrity, Respect, Teamwork, Leaders Lead, and Little Things Matter. Back then, my Leading Leaders book was still in draft and the working title was “Foundational Leadership,” but the concepts were the same as what appeared in the final copy. They’re short and thoughtful conversations on leadership. Enjoy!

Part 1 – Integrity. The cornerstone of any leadership philosophy is Integrity. Listen as we talk about what integrity means for leaders and why it’s indispensable for any high performance leader.


Part 2 – Respect. Respect is both inherent to any human being and earned through our behavior. High performing leaders understand the need to earn respect and demand the team respect each other.

Part 3 – Leaders Lead. The subject of this session was using authority properly, as well as delegating effectively.

Part 4 – Teamwork & Little Things Matter.  Really terrific discussion to wrap up the series on the art of teamwork and how high performing leaders decide which little things matter and which do not.
