Marine Corps Moms: HARD Fighting Marines: "LtCol Jurney's philosophy of leadership for his 1/6 Marines:
My personal leadership philosophy can be captured in one phrase 'Lead by Example.' When in charge, take charge. Lead from the front and by example. All values and ethical behavior for leading Marines stem from this basic position. When maintaining the standard in both our words and our deeds we consistently establish clear standards of what is expected. Time gets wasted when a leader sends mixed signals. Our actions must support our words. To lead by example is to tell our Marines what the standards are; why the standards are important and how the standards will accomplish the mission and save lives on the battlefield. Personal example is the strongest and most persuasive tool in our leadership kit bag. I expect every member of this command to embrace this simple philosophy, and 'walk their talk' to garner the loyalty and respect from those with which we have the honor to serve.
Tenets of 1/6 'HARD':
Marine leaders in 1/6 should always be doing one of two things;
leading their Marines in combat or preparing their Marines for combat. Nothing is more fundamental to war fighting excellence than a solid base of character. We must have trust and confidence in one another’s actions and commitments:
# HONESTY If you say you are going to do something, do it.
# ACTION If you see something is wrong, fix it.
# RESPECT If you want to be treated well, treat others well.
# DUTY If you put the mission and the welfare of those with which you serve first… then our team will be second to none."
