The Air Force has an exacting set of standards to ensure mission effectiveness.
Without these standards – and their disciplined enforcement in the most demanding conditions – the Air Force would cease to exist.
Sounds harsh but it’s true.
You see, standards ensure briefings are done right, aircraft are maintained with the highest attention to detail, weapons are deployed precisely, and safety procedures are fully applied.
The glue that helps everyone comply with these standards is accountability and discipline.
This brings up the question – What standards are you setting for yourself? And is your organization promoting a culture that has the highest standards possible?
Finally, are the standards you set pushing you and your team to optimal performance, or are they letting you get by with mediocrity and stifling your growth?
