Oakland McCulloch is a seasoned leader whose experiences span from military battlefields to corporate boardrooms. McCulloch, a former U.S. Army officer and author, delves into the essence of leadership, emphasizing integrity and the courage to make tough decisions. Drawing on over four decades of diverse experiences, he articulates how true leadership is about listening, debating, and making decisions that may not always be popular but are necessary.

McCulloch's leadership philosophy centers on the impact of choices, not just on oneself but on the broader community and future generations. He shares poignant examples from his military career, highlighting scenarios where leadership decisions had life-altering consequences. Through these narratives, McCulloch illustrates the gravity and responsibility that come with leadership roles, whether in combat or in peacetime.

Listeners are treated to a wealth of knowledge on the principles of effective leadership, including the importance of owning one's decisions and the ethical dilemmas leaders face. The discussion also touches on contemporary issues like corporate and governmental trust, urging current and aspiring leaders to prioritize the greater good over personal gain.
