The “Missing Link” in Preventing Military Suicides Identified

A 3-Minute Survey May Help Leaders Predict and Prevent Suicides

coffeeEach day I begin with a tradition that I call my “Morning Mocha Management.” In the time that it takes me to drink a tall cup o’ joe, I go through my RLM (Real Life Management) skills, take a deep breath, and the day starts off on a lighter foot. This morning, I read how those serving in the armed forces start off the same-but many times their day beings before the rooster crows. Here’s  a glimpse into what I learned.

In the military, leadership is everything. Without strong leaders, the military is weak and ineffective. But leadership may now be strengthened in the military as a tool is being tested that many consider the “missing link” in leaders being equipped to predict problems and help young soldiers deal with life issues that can lead to suicide, such as health, money and relationships.

Real Life Management (RLM) is under contract with the U.S. Army at Ft. Hood, Texas, as the Army begins testing the RLM “3-Minute Survey” in various areas to see how it may help them improve day-to-day leadership skills. RLM hopes that, as progress is made and positive results are seen in the Army, other branches of the military may also consider testing the RLM system.

Wayne E. Nance, CEO and founder of RLM, along with other renowned authors and researchers, has been studying for more than twenty-five years in the areas of finances, relationships and health. The result is RLM’s dynamic, life-altering system which enables people to understand the attitudes and core beliefs that affect their daily decisions. The cornerstone of this successful system is the 3-Minute Survey. Nance and RLM believe that these issues are actually interrelated, and they seek to provide keen insight into individuals’ attitudes, communication styles and decision-making methods.
