The Shadow of The Leader

Voltaire once said, "An institution is the lengthened shadow of one person," and it clearly depicts the critical role of the leader. This basic concept of the central importance of the leader in relation to the group has not changed, but scientific research in recent years has contributed much in relation to fostering motivation, and building trust in leadership practices. Because leadership deals with people, the new "person-centered" approach has important implications for the role of the leader as well.

The Information Dominance Corps will be the lengthened shadow of VADM Dorsett. It will be a good thing to have 3 star representation as the head of our officer community. He has done an excellent job of communicating his vision and is a prolific writer/communicator in the style of Admiral James Stavridis, USEUCOM.
