Leadership Traits in Recruit Training

Recruit boot camp is the toughest and most challenging training in the world. And often, the physical and mental challenges overshadow the most important aspect of training – the foundation of leadership. Recruits learn and practice leadership traits that will serve them in the military and their life. I want to share eight Christian leadership attributes that recruits learn and actively engage in during recruit training.

Compassion for Others (Esther)

Perhaps this is the moment for which you have been created.” Esther 4:14
