Upcoming Leadership Traits Series

*Disclaimer: This blog/my thoughts do not reflect the official thoughts or position of the Marine Corps on any issue. These are my opinions/thoughts only.*

The Marine Corps (side note: Corps is pronounced as “core”) is an organization steeped in tradition, a strong sense of brotherhood and camaraderie, and a set of tried and true “Corps Values”. Over the coming weeks, I want to delve into some of these values and traits in a series blog posts that will cover the Corps Values of Honor, Courage, and Commitment, as well as the 14 Leadership Traits and what each one is about. I’ve been pretty all over the place with posting on an irregular schedule until this point. During the time when I post these entries, I’ll try my best to get one post out each week. I’ll also try to keep it to a specific day (to be determined). This way, not only will this make the blog seem a bit more put together, but you have something to look forward to! Over the duration of time it takes me to create these blogs, I’ll keep updating them all with hyperlinks to the rest of the ones in the series. Here are the topics we’ll go over:

Corps Values:

Honor
Courage
Commitment

Leadership Traits: (We use the acronym JJDIDTIEBUCKLE to remember them)

Justice
Judgment
Dependability
Initiative
Decisiveness
Tact
Integrity
Endurance
Bearing
Unselfishness
Courage
Knowledge
Loyalty
Enthusiasm

Don’t worry! It won’t just be walls of text like recently; there will be pictures and everything to break it up a bit. You can expect the first post sometime within the next week. Stay tuned!

Until then…

-J
