Decide Who You Want to Be to Inspire What you will Plan and Do

Col. Stretch Dunn (USA Ret) presented a short seminar at the Life Leaders meeting on “Best-Self Leadership.” He included this definition of a “true professional.”

“True Professional: person who seeks mastery and earned empowerment through trust in character and competence, preparing and persisting to develop fitness and habits to do the harder right well—instinctively—even under stress.”

Professionalism Under Stress, Dunn & Dyson

Stretch believes Life Leaders should think about “who” we want to be and that insight can inspire us to plan and take action. He cited that our writing the book Professionalism Under Stress inspired him more to want to be a “true professional” so he would exemplify “character and competence even under stress.” He presented some of his plans to “be” that kind of person.
