As leaders and wingmen, it is imperative that we make time for our Airmen. If you say you have an “open-door-policy” make sure you are living up to your part of that deal and that the saying is not a cliché. Our Airmen go through a myriad of life stressors and sometimes need to talk. On the other hand, sometimes they just want career advice or just to bend your ear -- but you never know unless YOU listen. There is nothing so important that you can’t spare five minutes of your time to listen. You actually might just save a life. It is said that smart people learn from their mistakes, wise people learn from other’s mistakes… Be wise.
