A good leader fights in the trenches alongside the team. Retired Army Brig. Gen. Becky Halstead can attest to the power of being of your people, not above your people. In her interview with former SUCCESS magazine publisher Darren Hardy, she shares stories of her struggle to be a humble yet powerful officer and the lessons she learned along the way.

This interview appears on the SUCCESS Talks Collection, available in the August 2014 edition of SUCCESS magazine.

Favorite quote:

“I always say that leadership is about the led. And so my soldiers helped me be a better leader, and I always want to remember where I came from.”
