I will not feel insecure at all knowing you are going to the Pentagon. You write professionally and concisely state simple bullet points which I happen to agree with. I flourished under the direction of some people while others tried to stifle me and take away the things I had achieved. It is all about power struggles and whether people have the talent and charisma to make it in their field. I am Blessed to know you. I hope you have people who are content in their positions to allow you to flourish in your new role. When people lack things they can not make up for with other talents then they need to concede there will always be someone smarter or prettier or younger, but to be confident about your own potential and encourage others to meet their potential is the true mark of a natural leader. Good luck in the land of awesome museums. Wait until you ride their escalators they can make you dizzy!

OK... The critical hat is on now.

6 things great leadership teams do, then you give us 6 paragraph names that are not "doing" verbs.

How often do you do purpose, can you purpose? If I gave you the night, could you come back tomorrow and show me how to purpose? How about Consensus? Can you consensus? If you could go to the library, could you get a book on how to consensus?

I couldn't get past this... Great leadership teams do... proofreading.

My Commander would not go in front of the troops wearing the wrong uniform and this guy didn't have his right hand person proofread this article.

I agree with it. When you are an engaging leader that listens to your people it makes them feel comfortable enough to bring ideas and suggestions to the table. Ultimately there is one leader, but by empowering your people you create a shared leadership environment. Of course this creates buy-in as well. There are situations like combat and emergency responses where there is one leader and all take orders from them. This does not mean there is zero input, but there is no such thing as shared leadership in these situations.
