Who commands them, sir?

We had a good chat about the military and leadership and how businesses want to learn what people in the military have learned but can’t really be seen as taking consulting or help from the military.
We think of it as so – well, military – as somehow martial.
I, too, have a gut response that says, “Oh, no. Not military influence!” But I’ve spent enough time with military people to know how gracious they can be, how intelligent, how full of the idea of service. Those who learn to lead, really learn to LEAD. I mean, if you’re going to lead someone to their death, you have to be really good at leading in the end.
So there are things to learn, of course. I’m not interested in the hierarchy but the leadership and camaraderie, I’d be very happy to have those at my command.
