Gary, I agree with you that these are essential elements in being the ideal hire. I also feel, that one reason military veterans struggle to transition to fulfilling careers outside the military is that as young leaders. often we are essentially taught the OPPOSITE if these three traits. Especially among non-combat veterans, he (or she) who acts the fastest, values administrative orders over loyalty to followers and speaks the loudest, must be the best leader. This mentality in combat situations can get people killed. In corporate situations it is a mark of someone who fails to understand what it means to be a leader. The best hires are often the best leaders, even if they lead from, “behind the scenes.” May we all aspire to inspire in these three categories!
