Military author selected for prestigious academic fellowship

June 1, 2007 (San Dimas, CA) Military-Writers.com is a website dedicated to researching and listing current, former and active United States Military personnel who have authored books. Wally Adamchik, the author of No YELLING: The Nine Secrets of Marine Corps Leadership you MUST know to WIN in business, has been selected as a Non-Resident Fellow for Marine Corps University for the 2007-2008 academic year.

The Non-Resident Fellows is a distinguished group of
leadership experts and practitioners from active duty as well as the civilian sector; but the common thread with all Fellows is the desire to increase the study and application of leadership in the Marine Corps. Fellows will work with the Lejeune Leadership Institute by providing non-resident perspective and expertise. This may include: contributing to leadership curricula at various schools; writing papers for publication; assisting with the development of case studies or tools for use in the operating forces; and, assisting in local Lejeune Leadership Institute support visits to USMC bases and stations.

The mission of Lejeune
Leadership Institute is to advance the study and practice of leadership excellence throughout the Marine Corps, focusing on leader development founded on core values. Institute Director, Dr. Joseph Thomas points out, “there are many, many needs. The Fellows perspective from outside of Marine Corps University is most welcome and we look forward to their input.”

When asked how he felt about this selection Adamchik commented, “It is kind of amazing that I can continue to make a contribution to the Marines in a very significant way a decade after I served. In fact, it is what I learned since the Marines that gives me a perspective they want to hear. We will learn from each other and make our Corps better. It is a bonus that my clients will benefit from this also.”

Wally Adamchik, a former tank commander and helicopter pilot with the United States Marine Corps, is the founder and president of FireStarter Speaking and Consulting, a national leadership development and consulting firm. His book, No Yelling: The 9 Secrets of Marine Corps Leadership You Must Know to Win in Business, draws upon the real-life experiences of those currently serving in the Marines and those now in the civilian sector to explain how anyone can incorporate the nine essential behaviors of Marine Corps leadership into their daily business life.

The book includes more than 100 interviews with current and former Marines, and offers side-by-side comparisons of their application in military and civilian settings. “The
leadership techniques displayed by the United States Marine Corps have proven themselves time and again in battle,” says Adamchik. “These same principles can be applied from the break room to the board room to help anyone excel in business.”
