The finale of the USMC Leadership Traits compilation series, the Professor talks about the last (but not least) 5 traits of JJDIDTIEBUCKLE Unselfishness, Courage, Knowledge, Loyalty, and Endurance.

You may assume that Endurance just means physically. Being able to march, hump and fight for long periods of time. While that is part of it, mental endurance is equally as important and necessary to be a leader. If you burn out before your subordinates, that is not a good example to set. 

If you found value in this series, we have the perfect thing for you. The JJDIDTIEBUCKLE poster, that has the full list of traits and their associated definitions printed right on, for a daily reminder of what it takes to be a true Leader.
