Team Trident is on the move again. This time a team is journeying through Europe, following the wartime experiences of “E” Company, 506th PIR, the famed “Band of Brothers.”
The small team, led by TeamTrident colleague Jay Holmes, begins their expedition in Toccoa, Georgia, and will work their way from Aldebourne, England to Berchtesgaden and the “Eagle’s Nest.” While Jay is not carrying his laptop with him, he is armed with his phone and will endeavor to keep a stream of photos coming back, along with a few short updates as they advance. I will attempt to serve as the CIO…and do what I can to keep things together so we can follow their progress, then look forward to hearing more details on their return.
It’s underway again. And, while the big stories are those of the big names like Lance Armstrong, Alberto Contador, Andy Schleck, and others, already we are seeing that this is really the story of epic, titanic battles between teams…Team RadioShack, Team Astana, and Team SaxoBank…and others.
Team Trident is headed for the Pacific! We’ll be studying the epic WWII Central Pacific theater campaign for the Marianas, Operation FORAGER, which began 15 June 1944, one week after D-Day at Normandy, France. The key island targets of the Marianas were Saipan, Guam, and Tinian. In the Pacific, the attainment of this island group was the apex up to that point of the war, the desired end-state during a year’s advance through the smaller island atolls in the Central Pacific…the Gilbert and Marshall Island groups. Once the Americans reached the Marianas, the American Forces moved far forward, regrouped, and pushed ahead. The next target was homeland Japan.
Welcome to “The Trident,” the Leadership Lifestyle home of Trident Leadership.com.
Good leadership doesn’t live at the office, on the battlefield, or on the ball field. Good leadership is not something you turn on or off, or put in a box; it is a lifestyle!
