Leadership and Reinvention: The Aim Point Principles
In his thrilling and thoughtful book, Colonel Bruce Hurd vividly describes the adventure, excitement, and triumph he felt during his 30-year career as an Air Force officer and pilot. Through his powerful narrative, often told with a dry wit, readers gain a real appreciation for the rich and full life of a career military officer. But this compelling novel isn’t just for the military-minded. Additionally, Colonel Hurd talks movingly about confronting the disappointment, fear, and shame arising from very painful and difficult personal ordeals he faced. After great success in numerous leadership positions as an Air Force officer and in his post-military career as a software development program manager, he also speaks to the importance of being able to reinvent ourselves throughout our lives. Colonel Hurd concludes his book by introducing the reader to his eight “Aim Point” principles that have been his touchstones throughout his life. He has used them each time he has been confronted with the need for personal reinvention. His inspiring book is a must-read for Air Force enthusiasts, anyone confronting deeply personal challenges, and those facing the need for reinvention in their lives.
