You told your flight two weeks in advance to have their living quarters prepared for inspection. On the day of inspection, which was scheduled to take place at 1300, you had tickets reserved for a NBA game. Your pick up time for the tickets was 1200. This conflicted with the time of the inspection. You had to determine whether to go get the tickets, or stay and walk through your flight to ensure they were ready for inspection. Your final decision was to stay and confirm that your flight was ready for inspection.Using the principles learned in this chapter and the EPME Structured Thinking Process (IDDP), identify what LEADERSHIP trait was BEST demonstrated by your actions?
Selflessness is sacrificing personal wants and needs for a greater cause which reflects the core value “Service Before Self.” This also includes the courage to face and overcome difficulties. The selfless leader is always thinking about how to make the unit, the Air Force, and the country a better place. As a follower, you should always want a selfless leader who thinks of others before him\herself.
