Do you have a written individual code of conduct? Does your organization have a clear, concise code that causes commitment?  Read the US military code of conduct. It is very clear, concise and causes commitment.  If you don’t have one, create one, don’t use big words, make yours very clear. 

Spend time reviewing your history, the words you have used and the unspoken expectations that you and your organization have.  Write them down and be very clear. 


The Code of Conduct provides guidance for the behavior and actions of members of the Armed Forces of the United States. This guidance applies not only on the battlefield, but also in the event that the service member is captured and becomes a prisoner of war (POW).

The Code is delineated in six articles.

Article I:

I am an American, fighting in the forces which guard my country and our way of life. I am prepared to give my life in their defense.[3]

The Power Behind Leadership: Administrative Professional Pegine Leadership Keynote www.Pegine.com 904.280.8806

The key to having your assistant be your partner to achieve your visions is to share your visions. So many leaders won’t share with their assistant where they want to go, what they want to nachieve, who’s important to them and the strategy of how to get from where they are to where they want to go.

Leaders who use their assistants to help them move the needle gain insights of which they may not be aware. The Power Behind Leadership: Administrative Professional Pegine Leadership Keynote www.Pegine.com 904.280.8806 Great assistants know what’s happening around the office. They know what’s happening in the field, they have antennas on their head that make them very savvy and aware. If you share where you want to go, they can offer you some insights about who might be a great leader for an event, they know where the bodies are buried and that could be useful to you.

Why Emotions Matter to Great Leaders

Great leaders see the good in everything, the see the future as becoming better, expanded and prosperous. Great leaders know that focusing on solutions and their emotional state makes a big difference in their lives and the lives of the people they work with.

Emotions Matter To Great Leaders 

Your calm, cool and joyful demeanor isn’t easy to maintain at times. However, it is the only way to stay centered, present and focused so you can be content and be the leader you know you are capable of being.

A family member leaves our world to join the dearly departed or there is a challenge with a loved one.

At the office, there may be lots of drama, politicking, and people strategizing. There may be people who go around, or over colleagues looking at their interests and not necessarily looking for the highest and best interest for all.

Want to Engage Your People? Be a Community Organizer

Engage your people. It is critical in this day and age of high technology.

What started as a group of twenty people who I invited to my hotel room during a conference, has grown to 760+ members and active participants. They connect on our Facebook group, and at a boutique conference within our national conference. Two weeks ago we surveyed our group and found the ROI. WOW! 52% of participants stated that they stay with the organization because of the group, without the group they would have left.

Military Millennials Train to be Great Leaders

Military Millennials Are Different

Military Millennials Are Different — Those who have signed up to serve our country now and in the coming future are Millennials. People lump all Millennials into one bucket and make assumptions of who they are. There is a subset of Millennials that you, as leaders, have to be aware of. After their military service, they will see to work for your companies, organizations, and associations.   Know who you are dealing with. The moment you see military service or prior service, shift your perspective.

Remember we are an all volunteer military.  To join the military you have to be between the ages of 17 to 34, depending on the branch. I call them #MilitaryMillenials

Here are 6 falsehoods about Millenials who join the military and are prior service (veterans).

Leaders Take Charge of Tyrants, Teasers, and Turncoats

Leaders take charge to deal with the Tyrants, Teasers, and Turncoats. They are management at its worst.

Tyrants, Teasers, and Turncoats.

The last few days my office has received frustrated calls from senior management from three different organizations about difficult managers who are hurting productivity, employee engagement and causing EEO issues.

There is a difference between being a feisty, fearless, focused, fun leader and a tyrant, tease and turncoat.

In all cases, the leadership took action after people left, complained or when they were sued. When leaders take charge engagement increases, bad apples are removed and productivity increases because of a calm, stress-free, supportive environment immediately occurs.


Tyrants scream, abuse, ridicule others in public, intimidate and create a workplace environment of fear, frustration, and sabotage.  Not only do they intimidate their employees — they intimidate their leaders.  Tyrants may be experts in their fields, however, this is the perfect time to rein them in and give them a choice – change or leave.  Leaders fear them because they ‘might’ sue the company.  It’s funny how they don’t fear the employees of the tyrant.

Be A Great Boss

You do make a difference. Your decision to be a great boss and leader has significant ramifications.

According to the Gallup Survey on Employment engagement only 31.5% are engaged at work. Down by -0.7.  Their research showed that organizations with engaged employees were outperforming their peers.   More than one in three employees (35%) have changed jobs within the past three years, and 91% of employees left their company to do so, according to Gallup’s State of the American Workplace report.

Gallup asked employees how important certain attributes are when they consider whether to take a job with a different organization. They found that employees place the greatest importance on a role and an organization that offers them:

  1. The ability to do what they do best

  2. Greater work-life balance and better personal well-being

  3. Greater stability and job security

  4. S significant increase in income
