With this episode, we honor all veterans, and at the same time share the incredible lessons, valuable in all walks of life, this one leader has distilled from a life of service. In honor of Veterans Day for this special episode Joe De Sena sat down with Retired Command Sergeant Major Rick Lamb - among his significant military background a Silver Star, Legion of Merit, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Joint Commendation Medal with V Device for valor, Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal with three Bronze Campaign Stars and Invasion Arrowhead, Master Parachute Badge, Ranger and Special Forces Tabs, and two awards of the Combat Infantryman’s Badge.

Lamb explains the clarity with which mission, purpose and leadership can be conveyed and bestowed and talks about the essentials of a solid team. In the end it is about being able to trust the person to your left and right and mastering your profession. First step? Looking the part and be the part.

As a father, Lamb tells Joe how he was able to get his teen son back on track with a simple process because in the end if your not raising good humans, your not doing your job.

To all veterans out there, thank you for your service.
