Zell Miller was one of the United States’ most respected leaders. His integrity, passion, and commitment to excellence earned the praise of colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Miller often attributed his successes to the value of his formative experience in the Marine Corps as a young man. In his writing and stump speeches, he stated, “In the twelve weeks of hell and transformation that were Marine Corps boot camp, I learned the values of achieving a successful life that have guided and sustained me on the course which, although sometimes checkered and detoured, I have followed ever since.” In Corps Values Miller recounts his life and the simple but powerful lessons he learned in the U.S. Marines: the core values he feels we must embrace if we are to be successful as individuals and as a nation. Only by incorporating such time-honored Marine qualities as pride, discipline, courage, and respect into our personal and professional lives can we meet the challenges that lie ahead. With Corps Values Miller urges us all to go back to “basic training” to reinforce the values that ultimately lead to success in any endeavor.
All of us have watched successful sports teams and many of us have worked as a part of a successful business team.

All of us have watched successful sports teams and many of us have worked as a part of a successful business team. However, not all of us have taken the time to consider what values contribute to building that success. My observations convince me that the leaders within these successful teams consistently leverage simple but critical core values. Core values that inspire individuals and build highly successful teams. Over time, I realized that I learned most of these simple, successful values while I was a cadet at Texas A&M University. Without fully comprehending why I held strong convictions about leading using these values, I built a successful career in corporate America that led me to several key executive roles. Late in my career, I began to piece together the origins of these values. Most successful leaders build and leverage these values as they progress in their career. Often times these lessons come with setbacks. My buddies in the Corps were exposed to all of the lessons in four short years. I would like to share these experiences with you and the lessons we learned so you can compress your learning curve and build your leadership value library without exposing yourself to some of the consequences that come with new knowledge.

Core Values By: Dr. Janice M. Brooks, Master Sergeant, USMC, Ret. With an ever-changing battlefield and technological landscape, military leadership must adapt to new challenges in order to meet the needs of subordinates and the demands of the mission. For a leader to be successful, there must be genuine recognition of the people, their work, and their gifts. Backed by 22 years of experience from Dr. Janice M. Brooks, Core Values: Styles and Practices of Successful Military Leaders examines the characteristics and practices of strong, successful leaders. Her research reveals the need for genuine compassion, the practice of values, the balance of intellect and emotion, and the ability to incorporate new and existing leadership styles. A Holistic and humanistic values-based leadership model meets these evolving needs, ensuring that the leader is respected, followed, and also trusted during the country’s most demanding missions.

The home my family occupied after we moved to Kingston was situated along the route taken by dignitaries on their way to Jamaica House, the Prime Minister's official residence. As a result of this fortuitous bit of luck, we never had to join the throng at the airport eagerly awaiting Queen Elizabeth, Emperor Haile Selassie or other important visitors to our island; we merely had to wait by our gate for the motorcade and wave furiously as they drove by, escorted by the police and a line of other official cars. I was a teenager then and although the excitement was undeniable, other issues held my attention. Jamaica was changing, an independent country gradually shedding the mantle of colonialism and on the cusp of forging a new identity. The Black Green and Gold was everywhere along with a sense of pride and all the possibilities the future held and I needed to find my place in this new country. Little did I know then how much my life would change, that in time I would be a part of that inner circle greeting official guests to Jamaica and meeting with the Prime Minister at his residence. This then is my story, written not only as an observer but an active participant in events of the still unfolding tale that is Jamaica. To my humble parents who without treasure gave the best they had to give, a love that has solidified the bond between their children; to my wife and sons and finally to the men and women of the Jamaica Defense Force with whom I served proudly for more than half of my life. And to the active soldiers and reservists who continue to serve in this their finest calling, to defend the honor of their country.

This book is designed to provide law students in the introductory environmental law course with the broad foundation needed to practice in the field and to pursue further course work in specialized environmental topics. Unlike many casebooks, Environmental Law and the Values of Nature recognizes that “natural resources law” has become an integral part of environmental law and is the arena for today's most important environmental issues. Part One presents some of the principal components of modern environmental law including public land law and the historical context in which each developed. Part Two examines critical issues in contemporary environmental law. This course book also treats several relatively new topics usually omitted from environmental law casebooks, such as restoration, mitigation, conservation biology, and ecosystem management. Incorporating edited statutes, agency regulations, and writings, Finkmoore provides all of the teaching materials needed in a comprehensive introductory course, and many in-text graphics will hold student interest. The teaching package includes a teacher's manual, PowerPoint slides keyed to the reading, and photographic slides of a number of places that were the subject of the principal court decisions contained in the course book.

The Air and Space Basic Course (ASBC) was chartered in 1997 to address concerns presented by Air Force leadership at the Fall 1996 CORONA Conference held at the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, Colorado. At the CORONA meeting, senior Air Force policymakers including the Secretary of the Air Force (SAF) and the Chief of Staff of the Air Force (CSAF), desired to remedy five deficiencies observed within the Air Force officer corps: a lack of understanding of the Air Force Core Values, a lack of appreciation for the Air Force Core Competencies, the inability to responsibly advocate how 21st century aerospace power can contribute to success in joint military operations, the existence of careerism among officers from different commissioning sources and air force specialty codes (AFSCs) a misunderstanding of the importance of the teamwork concept within the American military.

An inspiring and nonpartisan guide to the ten uniquely American attributes that lead to a better life-just in time for elections! America is a great country, a fact that is often overlooked with all the bickering and negativity in our culture today. And what makes us great, states Bill Halamandaris, are ten core values that have always been found in the spirit of the American people: Compassion, Opportunity, Responsibility, Equality, Valor, Ambition, Liberty, Unity, Enterprise, Spirituality. In 10 short chapters, Halamandaris explains why each of these values forms the foundation of our country, from our Founding Fathers to today's popular culture. He then shows how and why each of us should instill these values in our daily lives, not to return to an outdated ideal or to throw back history, but to step forward together into a brave new world. At the end of each chapter, Halamandaris tells the story of 4 to 5 contemporary Americans who are inspiring examples of lives well lived. Some of these people are famous; most are ordinary people who have chosen to do extraordinary things, like the school girl who has served 350,000 meals to the homeless and the man who has made it his business to hire only people no one else wants. The Heart of America is not about philosophy or finger-pointing at either side in the culture debate; it is a call to arms to be the best we can be every day. The Heart of America Foundation is a national non-partisan, nonprofit humanitarian organization whose mission is to teach the values at the heart of America and to help people, particularly children, learn that they can help themselves when they help others. Their programs include: The Youth Ambassador Program uses dynamic, service-minded youth leaders to inspire children in schools around the country to recognize their potential for social service. Heroes of the Heart recognizes and honors individuals and corporations who perform remarkable volunteer services. The Heart Corps offers financial credits for college to middle school and high school students who volunteer in their communities. Books from the Heart finds books that are not being used and distributes them to needy children and school libraries. Speaking from the Heart is a professional speakers bureau of more than 200 active youth and adult speakers, with all proceeds going to charity. The National Community Fund is an umbrella organization that donates to worthy charities promoting public service around the country.
