Here we are in the second installment of the USMC Leadership, A.K.A. JJDIDTIEBUCKLE, compilation. During this episode, Prof. Paul talks about Decisiveness, Tact, Integrity, Enthusiasm, and Bearing.

Jarrad will tell you himself, Tact is one of the hardest things to implement, but also one of the most important. Integrity on the other hand is explained quite simply: Doing the right thing, even when no one is looking. Wisdom doesn’t have to be convoluted.

If you would like a daily reminder of the JJDIDTIEBUCKLE traits, we have an awesome Poster for you over at!
