Ashley’s Leadership Philosophy
Attitude is EVERYTHING. I believe in a HOOAH can-do attitude!
My job is to take care of you, mentor and nurture you, provide the resources
needed, stay out of your way, and grow the next generation of leaders
You watch my 6 and I watch yours
We will have fun
One team-One Fight
I will always trust you…until you prove yourself untrustworthy
I like to get out from behind my desk and walk around
I like to talk to people, get out of the office & avoid unnecessary meetings
I hold everyone accountable for their duties and responsibilities
Recognition (formal and informal) is vital – never met an award category I
didn’t like if we have deserving nominees
We will work reasonable hours and make time for our families - your
families are important to me and you
Make sure you run out of career before you run out of family
Personal (haircuts, uniforms) and workcenter appearances are very
• The key to happiness is low standards.
• Face it…by definition – half of us are below average.
• I might not be able to make you do it…
but I can make you wish you had.
• Say it loud and with confidence and it will be believed.
• A hooah and a nod can carry you a long way in life.
• If everything is important – then nothing is important.
• You can do twice as much…if you half-ass everything.
• There is an art to knowing when to shut up.
• If you can’t be on time, be early.
• If you are an optimist, your life is filled with disappointment….
• If you are a pessimist, your life is filled with pleasant surprises.
• R X IQ = C
– Rank Times IQ is a Constant
