To innovate, we can't be afraid to fail

"Throughout history, people with new ideas - who think differently and try to change things - have always been called troublemakers." - Richelle Mead, author.

The Air Force is pushing hard for us to innovate. You hear it when our senior leaders give speeches or post articles imploring us to improve. Examples include the AFSO21 process or the new Airmen Powered by Innovation program launched in April. All of that is great, except for the fact that over the last 30 years, we've created an organization that is resistant to failure.

Armchair philosophy, helping Airmen think critically

More is expected of Airmen today than ever before, said Lt. Gen. Darryl Roberson, 3rd Air Force and 17th Expeditionary Air Force commander, during his recent visit to Royal Air Force Lakenheath.

Airmen need to be sharper and more well-rounded because the Air Force has fewer people to accomplish the same mission, he said at an all-call Nov. 13.

The Lakenheath Philosophical Society, founded by Tech Sgt. Jason Harlan, 48th Munitions Squadron conventional maintenance production supervisor, seeks to develop the critical-thinking skills Airmen need to better themselves, both in their jobs and in their day-to-day lives.
