Our Story

Ten Years and Counting

How2Lead.US, LLC had its beginning with coaching, teaching and mentoring US Army ROTC Cadets at universities in Texas, Arkansas and Louisiana as former US Army Officers with a pro bono program “Passing the Torch.”

The program worked with ROTC Cadre at these universities to augment the curriculum designed to prepare these future officers for their roles as US Army leaders.

The program included on campus and off site offerings including visits to the D-Day Battlefields and Beaches of Normandy, France as well as historic sites in the US. The program was expanded to include commercial clients in 2018.

How2Lead.US, LLC Remembers it’s Roots

How2Lead continues to provide coaching, teaching and mentoring efforts in support of US Army and USAF ROTC programs. Often partnering with commercial clients who also participate in providing these emerging leaders with insights and skills based on their own experiences.

Normandy: The D-Day 1944 Battlefields

In 2014 we added Normandy to the list of historical venues that lend themselves to a deep study of leadership.  

We have explored these sites and lessons with ROTC cadets, with groups of business leaders and in combined cadet/business leader experiences.  

The lessons on this battlefield (as is always the case) transcend purely military considerations. The lessons apply to all walks of life (personal and professional).

ROTC Support

Since 2011 we have been supporting US Army ROTC programs at universities across Texas and Arkansas. Providing coaching teaching and mentoring to cadets who will soon be US Army officers. 

All activities are coordinated with, and in support of the ROTC curriculum and the cadre members.

Inchon: The Korean War

In 2019 we conducted an event in Korea for business leaders examining the initial actions after the NKPA conducted a surprise attack on the South; the bold actions taken by General MacArthur at Inchon, the decisions leading to the Chinese decision to enter the conflict and the transformational leadership of General Ridgeway to finally turn the conflict around.  

We examined leadership lessons that had impact from the strategic to the tactical levels.
