The Marine Corps could not be our nation's expeditionary force in readiness without Marines who are trained to respond faithfully, courageously and decisively. These are the leadership traits that enable Marines to lead with honor, on the battlefield and in the community.
To ensure every Marine has the ability-and the authority-to make important decisions in the midst of chaos, or in the absence of specific orders, Marines operate according to the philosophy of "Commander's Intent." Essentially, this means that when a subordinate leader finds himself in a situation where he needs to make an immediate decision, he has the bias for action that allows him to make the decision that best supports his commander's desired end state.
Principles such as "lead by example" and "make sound and timely decisions" are lessons Marines continue to apply at home, in the community and in the business world. Values and traits like courage, resourcefulness, flexibility and the ability to inspire, set Marines apart as leaders.
