Service-focused: General John Sattler

General John Sattler, USMC (Ret.) leads a workshop on ATI’s core values

Last week, the ATI team enjoyed an afternoon with Lieutenant General John Sattler, USMC (Ret.), a member of the Board of Directors of Analytic Services, Inc. (ANSER) and Distinguished Chair of Leadership at the US Naval Academy Stockdale Center for Ethical Leadership.  A distinguished motivational speaker and senior mentor within the Marine Corps and Joint Forces Command, General Sattler served as the Director of Strategic Plans and Policy (J5) for the Joint Staff from September 2006 until his retirement in August 2008.  Prior to joining the Joint Staff, he was the Commanding General of the First Marine Expeditionary Force and Commander, Marine Corps Forces Central Command.

While at ATI, General Sattler led a discussion about the importance and meaning our core values:

  • Integrity in everything we do;
  • Passion for our work;
  • Teamwork is the hallmark of our efforts;
  • Relentless pursuit of Excellence; and
  • Agility to meet the rapidly changing demands of our clients and partners.

Our team members live these values in the work they do every day and in every customer interaction.

As our discussion revealed, at the heart of these values is ATIs’ core belief is in service: to our country, to our customers, and to the solutions derived from our efforts.

Because we make service the focus of our work, the ATI team is able to collaborate effectively, both internally and externally.  This commitment to service helps each of us keep the warfighter at the center of our work.

Thank you to General Sattler for leading such an insightful and inspiring discussion!
