Abstract : General Jerry O'Malley was a practical yet charismatic leader who attained the rank of four-star general in 32 years of Air Force service. His charismatic leadership style was the result of a unique balance of priorities: caring for people and getting the mission done. He demonstrated 21st century leadership, pulling rather than pushing, before the concept was in vogue. This paper shows that nice people can finish first, he led by example, and his confidence was built on past successes.
