'Rule of Three' Leadership Workshop
Retired Major General
What is the best leadership advice you ever received?
I was fortunate to have many good mentors throughout my 40 years in the Army. Some great leadership advice I received was to be authentic and to demonstrate humility. The essence of leadership is taking care of those you lead and the foundation of being a good leader is to have strong character and integrity. Character does matter.
What ties do you have to northeastern Pennsylvania?
I was born in Moosic and grew up working in a family business my Dad started a few years after returning from WWII. The business was well known in its day - Paul Gronski Enterprises, Inc. I graduated from The University of Scranton.
Where are you teaching for the army and industry?
I am currently a Department of the Army Civilian and Senior Mentor for the U.S. Army Warfighter Exercise program. Over the next six months, I will provide leadership mentoring and coaching to Army leaders across the nation at Ft. Lewis, Washington, Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, and Ft Riley, Kansas. I will conduct leadership training for a large General Dynamics facility in Dallas, Texas in Spring 2020. I am providing leadership coaching to the student-athletes at Lebanon Valley College, in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania.
