DALLAS, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 29, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — For decades, Mike Armour (or Doctor Mike, as he is popularly known) has compiled an exceptional leadership record in far-ranging fields of endeavor.

Businesses of every size seek out Dr. Mike (he holds a PhD from UCLA) to help them develop more professional leadership teams.
“Leadership is different from management,” he notes, “but the two are often misconstrued and seen as one and the same. Management is largely process oriented. Leadership is uniquely people centric. Leadership is about uniting people around a shared purpose, the motivating them and mobilizing them to achieve it. And good leaders build esprit de corps along the way.”
Esprit de corps was originally a military term used to denote the pervasive spirit of unity within combat units. Dr. Mike knows this spirit well, having spent nearly half of his life in naval service. After a 10-year enlisted career, he was commissioned as an intelligence officer and eventually rose to the rank of Captain.
