Leadership in Perspective – How a Leader Responds When Capturing Saddam Hussein – The 10th Anniversary

Saddam Hussein - 10th Anniversary

Today marks the 10th anniversary of the capture of Saddam Hussein. However we each may feel about the War, it’s a good day to reflect on the sacrifices of the many men and women who achieved the mission of bringing him to justice.

After he was pulled from his spider hole, Saddam spent his first night in the company of Dr. Mark Green of Clarksville, Tennessee.  Today, Dr. Green is a member of the Tennessee Senate and a leading businessman. Then, he wore the uniform of U.S. Special Forces, an Army Ranger who was flight surgeon on some of the most sensitive missions of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I’d appreciate your sharing his recollections of that night — and his reflections on the sacrificial leadership of his brothers and sisters in arms — as it appear in this morning’s US News & World Report.

Read Dr. Green’s Op-Ed Article, and share your thoughts with us, too.

Here is my list of 16 trends shaping the future of ethical leadership. 

As we head into the New Year, let’s help our leaders be ready for this positive, proactive “ethical leadership future.”
