I was a member of Oregon Wing Civil Air Patrol [and] found some problems. One positive thing that I liked were the Aerospace Education Modules and the Learn to Lead Books.
I remember in Learn to Lead that Civil Air Patrol exposed Donald Trump as an absolutely horrible leader with atrocious manners and a mean spirit. I just checked on this to see if they are still being distributed with those words and sure enough they are. Volume 3, Chapter 11 The Leader as Commander.
These are the exact words on page 113.
Donald Trump’s famous catchphrase from The Apprentice does not show respect for the individual who is being dismissed, nor does it acknowledge that boss and subordinate alike share some responsibility for making their relationship work.
Make no mistake: Donald Trump’s famous catchphrase from The Apprentice, “You’re fired!” represents terrible leadership, atrocious manners, and a mean spirit.
