100% commitment, that's the essence of no-compromise leadership

No-compromise leadership is all about the thinking, behavior, and accountability that support all leadership results.  By design, no compromise cuts through the myriad excuses, emotional blockages and procrastination that silently infect leadership performance.  If "no compromise" becomes the mandate - the guided principle upon which all other leadership behavior emanates - the resulting outcomes will be nothing short of breakthrough.

ivewnthnCaptain Lambert,

This is one of the keys as to why our country was successful in winning the Cold War, we as a force (the 41 for Freedom Submarines) followed the ideas of the leadership today which are; warfighting first, operating forward, and being ready. There is no one in this country that can dispute what we did in those days with the 41 for Freedom Submarines. I do believe that our efforts and persistence to follow those rules of, warfighting first, operating forward, and being ready were practiced by our force as the number one priority from 1960 on to this day and will continue as our country’s needs require.

Thirty some years after serving as COB and Senior Fire Control Technician aboard the USS Tecumseh (SSBN 628) my Executive Officer of that time asked me if I would have pulled the firing key if it had been commanded to do that, and I told him that I would have certainly done what I had been ordered to do.

Very Respectfully,
