Episode Notes

“Leadership is the art of influencing human behavior to accomplish a mission in the manner desired by the leader.” – Canadian Forces definition of leadership

He also discusses his experiences in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets and how they shaped his ideas of leadership and self discipline.
