(Via WEIS Radio) The Inspirational Leadership Awards recognize service members, civilians and auxiliary volunteers for their accomplishments in innovative and people-focused initiatives across the country. The eight individuals selected for the 2021 awards were announced on July 20 by the Coast Guard Office of Leadership.
Since its inception in 1995, the Inspirational Leadership Awards have grown to include six separate awards. An eight-member panel deliberated over 108 nominations submitted for the awards. Bravo Zulu to the eight winners of the 2021 Coast Guard Inspirational Leadership Awards.
“A one-size-fits-all leadership style will not set you or your team up for success,” said Lt. j.g. Avery Lowe, Port Security Unit Mississippi. “To really have an impact on the mission and the future of your people, it is important to learn how THEY want to be led. Talk to your team. Learn their strengths and help them hone those to build confidence and trust. Mission success comes easily when those you lead know they are your priority because the people you serve are really what it’s all about anyway.”
Lowe is responsible for more than $2 million of communications gear and for organizing 15 highly successful morale events downrange, including fundraisers, deployment coin creation and outreach to school kids. Lowe is editor and content creator of the PSU Mississippi newsletter, which was crucial during deployment and was available to family members back home.
Lowe is an expert pastry chef trained in France. She is currently working on her Ph.D. in Astrobiology.
