Often confused with National Barbecue Day, Memorial Day is the day we honor the military heroes who paid the ultimate price for our country.

While leaders in business do not typically risk their lives for the mission of their organizations, there is much we can all learn about leadership from those in the military that did.

Here are the top leadership traits possessed by military leaders accompanied by a relevant image quote:

  • Work Ethic / Preparing To Win

no-secrets-to-success

  • Commitment / Discipline

I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself.

  • Honor / Integrity

Duty, Honor, Country. Those three hallowed words reverently dictate what you ought to be, what you can be, what you will be.

  • Self-less Service

Ask not what your country can do for you — ask what you can do for your country.

  • Perseverance / Overcoming Adversity

George-Patton-Success

  • Responsibility / Accountability / Lead by Example

  • Execution with Precision / Attention to Detail

When you are in any contest you should work as if there were – to the very last minute – a chance to lose it.

Whether you’re a manager in your organization or not, adhering to the traits of our military heroes can help you achieve greater levels of success!
