Over the course of a decorated career, which has included service under other highly esteemed military officers, he’s learned quite a bit about leadership, which he shares through his podcast, “Intentional Leader”; he also shares them with Nate Dewberry in this week’s edition of The Redeemed Man podcast, along with insights into the effective traits of servant leadership that Christ modeled for all of us.
