In 1987 I first wrote out my thoughts on leadership. The compilation included 13 principles that Air University published in the summer of 2005 as part 1 of what became the Lorenz on Leadership series. Later, in the spring of 2008, Air University published part 2, which included an additional eight leadership principles. Over the last few years, various experiences have highlighted yet another group that I present for your consideration. When I first wrote down these principles, I certainly didnt intend to prescribe an approved way to think or lead. After all, none of these tenets is unique. I took them from other leaders who influenced me through the years, hoping that readers would develop their own set of principles. Families are important--this goes without saying. When I say that this is a family business, realize that the term family encompasses more than just your immediate loved ones. In this case, it also includes our extended Air Force family. I cant tell you the countless times Ive heard people thank their brothers and sisters in the Air Force family. Sometimes they do so at promotion or retirement ceremonies, but Ive also heard the phrase at going-away parties and in daily conversations.
