Our Leadership    

So what do we mean when we talk about leadership? We mean having that “30,000 foot” view that sees not just the task at hand, but also things in the surrounding environment and those elements that influence and impact that task. When we speak of leadership, we speak of an expanded vision. Not to just manage to a Task, but to Lead to an Objective! We mean the ability to look beyond our own jobs and our own programs and make a broader contribution. In essence, it means modeling our behavior to function as “One Service and One Region”.
