It has become…

In the military, non-commissioned officers (NCOs) form the backbone of the service. In the business world it is much the same, although the personnel involved go by different titles.

I came across a vision statement for the military NCO corps that I felt was applicable to the business world as well…

As you join the NCO Corps, you should become familiar with and understand the NCO Corps Vision. As stated, that Vision is :

An NCO Corps, grounded in heritage, values, and tradition, that embodies the warrior ethos; values perpetual learning; and is capable of leading, training, and motivating soldiers. We must always be an NCO Corps that:

  • Leads by Example
  • Trains from Experience
  • Maintains and Enforces Standards
  • Takes Care of Soldiers
  • Adapts to a Changing World

What do you think? Would these principles work for your company?
