012: Tim Brock with Winning Hearts and Clearing Barriers

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I invite guests to share personal stories about small acts of leadership that help shape their lives.

In Episode 12, Tim Brock exemplifies the words of William Penn, turns a school around, reveals a surprising consequence, and encourages us to build a reputation of trustworthiness.

00:00 Prologue: Career of Stewardship

Throughout his career, Tim has helped others develop professionally. From the Air Force to serving in faculty roles, Tim has passionately instructed students to develop their leadership and expertise. Also, he managed a $40 million Titan II intercontinental ballistic missile launch facility (thank you, Tim, for your service). You can read more about Tim’s career on his LinkedIn profile (link below).

00:00 Part 1: What Every Wing Commander Should Strive to Achieve

Tim exemplifies the principle, Believe in Others. At seventeen, Tim applied a William Penn quotation to practice leadership with his four squad leaders.

00:00 Part 2: Change Your Environment to Enable Others to be at their Best

Tim tells the story of his first job as a civilian after his military service. As a principal of a private high school, Tim inspired creativity, collaboration, and accountability. While you can imagine the results, Tim shares an unexpected twist.

00:00 Part 3: Relationships, Reputation of Competence, and Trustworthiness

Practicing leadership is not only a way to help others mature their mental and moral qualities but also a way to strengthen your own character continuously.
