AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast

Soldier Today: Leading By Example

June 3, 2019

Co-hosts Sergeant Major of the Army (Retired) Ken Preston and Command Sergeant Major (Retired) Troy Welch, both of AUSA’s NCO & Soldier Programs, discuss what it means to lead by example for emerging leaders and young professionals. Operating within a band of excellence applies to all aspects of life, on- and off-duty, when setting an example for your Soldiers. The goal is to take that piece of the Army you’re responsible for and make it better than it was before you got there.

Soldier Today, a segment of AUSA’s Army Matters Podcast, focuses on what is important to Soldiers and NCOs. Recommendations for future topics are welcome via email at
