974. A Day in the Life: What's It Really Like to Be a Leadership Innovator?
Major General Robert W. Mixon, Jr.
“Serving in the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment-Blackhorse I was fortunate to know leaders who were truly outstanding. They were points of light during all the challenges that we faced and demonstrated a level of tactical patience, coaching and mentoring that inspired us. An analogy to the Band of Brothers (and Sisters) comes readily to mind. I was continually interacting with individuals who were role models. I’m proud to have served as deputy executive assistant to General Colin L. Powell when he was Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff as well as working with General Crosbie E. Saint and a host of other senior military leaders who personified the guiding values of Duty, Honor and Country and Service Above Self. I am proud to have served my country for 33 years and to command soldiers at a number of different levels. Leadership is a privilege not a right.”
