This is a great question. It will be important to name the principles of leadership that the Marines hold to. They are as follows:

  1. Dependability
  2. Bearing
  3. Courage
  4. Decisiveness
  5. Endurance
  6. Enthusiasm
  7. Initiative
  8. Integrity
  9. Judgement
  10. Justice
  11. Knowledge

These are all excellent characteristics for leadership. If a leader had these qualities, they would excel in almost any given circumstance. Moreover, there are a few of them that are particularly needed today, such as courage, integrity, and justice. Too often leaders can do what is easy, expedient and beneficial for them. Part of the weakness in our economy is due to the lack of these characteristics. In light of this, I would love to see more of the qualities that the Marines espouse in the work place and other areas of American society.
