"There is no such thing as combat leadership
just leadership."
Scott A. Huesing is a proven leader. He has spent his life conquering adversity and leading others to do the same. During his 24 years of service as a US Marine, he advanced through the ranks from enlisted soldier to a commissioned officer. His career spanned ten deployments and countless operations in over 60 countries. Scott served in some of the most dangerous places on the planet, including Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Horn of Africa. He successfully planned and led his men through hundreds of combat missions.
Major Scott Huesing, USMC (Ret), is most proud of leading those in his command in Echo Company, 2d Battalion, 4th Marines — one of the most esteemed and highly decorated infantry units in modern urban warfare.
Echo Company served in the deadliest city in Iraq - Ramadi. They were engaged in brutal combat daily against an elusive enemy. Their time there was defined by bloody firefights, volatile raids, and surviving unknown chaos in a world filled with most certain danger. Through it all - their camaraderie, training, discipline, and commitment to one simple but powerful leadership philosophy Scott instilled in his Marines:
"We will train hard,
we will fight,
and we will win."
Scott's goal was that the 250 young men under his command would have these words to fall back on, remember, and guide them when the most difficult decisions arose.

He cuts through the noise, honing in on goals, and communicates an objective-oriented message that is easy to remember and refer back to even in the most trying of circumstances. The underlying belief is that true leaders demonstrate their integrity and potential not when told what to do - but when they forge ahead with individual determination based on clear principles.
Leadership Is Improvement,
Not Change

The message — leadership is improvement, not change — is the core of what Scott shares with every team he leads. It is not about radical change but steady improvement that makes units and organizations the best they can be.

Scott applies his leadership-building method when speaking to any organization — first by researching the organization and learning their desired areas of improvement. He shares his vast experience tailored to every audience. Every talk and every lesson laced with the goal that organizations can see things through Scott's lens and then apply that to improve their team.

When your team seeks brass tacks progress, like improved productivity or understanding and creating a strong culture, Scott creates an impact through his presence. His essential goal is to make audience engagement a priority.

The key question he asks organizations is, "What do you want to improve?" Rather than, "What do you want to change?"

This distinction is subtle but profound. By inspiring improvement instead of encouraging change, the tone is aspirational. More importantly, there is a greater audience buy-in for the goal — to win.

For Scott, it is just about being authentic and transparent. Just as he led thousands of Marines, he commands audiences towards improvement by embodying excellence and relaying his personal stories of service. Audiences can listen to what he has to say, but they have to do the next step on their own — to care. To find ways to apply what they gain from Scott's wins and losses in their work and lives.
