October Life Skill of the Month – Leadership

Bradford Warner














Agspring Vice President of Marketing Bradford Warner kicked off the monthly HALO staff meeting leading a discussion on “Leadership,” which is the October HALO life skill.  Bradford offered insight and advice on how to continue growing the HALO family. He shared that the key to success to building a high performance team is that it requires each leader to continue to grow individually past what they believed was possible for themselves.

Here are some characteristics that define a good leader:

  • They deal with problems, failures and challenges in an open, honest and timely fashion.
  • They require all levels of the organization to continuously improve.
  • They produce greater growth, profit and professional opportunities for their staff than their industry peers.
  • They encourage excellence and reward achievement.
  • They are flexible and can rapidly adapt to problems and take advantage of opportunities as they rise.

As we grow our leadership skills at HALO, we are also taking these key qualities back to our youth to encourage them to become leaders in their lives as well. Bradford was adamant about sharing knowledge and celebrating achievements in order to create a positive and productive team environment. A valuable lesson in positive leadership to keep in mind as the HALO family continues to grow exponentially.
