Show notes
I invite guests to share personal stories about acts of leadership that help shape their lives. In Episode 95, Kim explains what someone who reported to her said that clarified how she would lead her squadron. When she became a Group Commander, Kim describes how she connected with a team of firefighters. Then, Kim advises how we can lead with courage.
Prologue
Kim “KC” Campbell is a retired Air Force Colonel and fighter pilot (call sign: Killer Chick). During her 24-years of service, she completed multiple deployments, holding successive leadership positions as a flight lead to the Director for the Center for Character and Leadership Development at the United States Air Force Academy. If you need a keynote speaker, Kim can get the job done, and your audience will leave with insights into leadership.
Taking command of a squadron comes with a formal ceremony. At Kim’s, something unusual happened that resulted in a comment that someone made to Kim that put how she would lead into perspective.
Connecting with a small team that you work with daily has its challenges. Having a team of a thousand spread across multiple locations has even more challenges. In this story, Kim shares an instance of how she connected with a team of firefighters who reported to her when she was a Group Commander.
Kim advises us to lead with courage. She explains four ways to be courageous, which may surprise you.
