Sharing Success–Owning Failure Preparing to Command in the Twenty–First Century Air Force
David L. Goldfein
Then-colonel David L. Goldfein discusses several themes central to a successful command tour.* His ideas and questions will spark your imagination as you begin preparing for the task ahead of you—squadron commander. He shares stories from other squadron commanders that include both success and failure because, as Goldfein states, “it is from studying our failures that we learn, grow, and improve as officers and leaders.” Maj Gen Charles D. Link, USAF, retired, states that “this book is a must-read, not only for those selected to command a squadron but for all our young officers.” *General Goldfein is the current chief of staff of the Air Force.
