Great Read! Good for the toolkit.

“What was the leadership environment like in your last unit and how does it compare to this one?”

Love this question for my situation. I left a military-ran unit for a civilian-ran organization that has service members as subordinates. The leadership styles of then and now are night and day. Military, if you get fired, you go to the S3 to work or moved to another unit. Civilians have the ability to loose everything. So, civilian leadership tend to have a more knee-jerk reaction to everything big or small. Most, as you were, "ALL" task from the civilians I work for are; last minute, poorly organized and labeled URGENT. Careful planning and referencing AARs for best practices, does not exist. Military, we do our best to lean on the past experiences and research how to accomplish something. Most of the time, it is easy because someone you know already did it and you can reach out to find out how. I could go on and on, but I won't. Just know that I cannot wait to get back to Army leadership!
