About General Paul G. Cohen, Administrator, Omaha Douglas Public Building Commission:
"Leadership is about trust, making shared goals, guiding and encouraging others to employ their strengths to accomplish a desired outcome. It can be awesome in its responsibility, frustratingly difficult at times, and especially rewarding when results are achieved. It is more than title or position, for those trappings do not make one a leader."
Union College, Schenectady, NY, Bachelor’s Degree in Economics
About General Michael S. Kudlacz, USAF retired:
"An effective leader must communicate the goals and vision for the organization, and then provide the tools, training and guidance for the employees to accomplish the goals. Employees should then be allowed to do their jobs without micromanagement. Results need to be measured and communicated regularly to track accomplishment and identify problem areas as well as successes. Employees need to be held accountable for the results. Weak results may require extra help or training; excellent results should be recognized and rewarded."
