About Tom Connally

Raised in a Navy family with two WWII Veterans for parents, Tom became a student of leaders at a young age.

He followed his older brothers to the Naval Academy and into the Marine Corps.

As a young officer, he observed that the performance of units was directly related to the culture, esprit, and work ethic.

The best units, including his, had an attitude of confidence that made every objective attainable and in which every Marine believed they were valued and desired to excel.

This culture of performance permeated every individual and started with the commander.

As a senior commander and chief staff officer, Tom put all of these lessons to work with exceptional results in combat organizations and staff agencies.

After 30 years of applying these principles in the Marine Corps, Tom spent five years observing their consistent results in the defense industry before founding Connally Consulting to help leaders and organizations improve their performance and success.

Tom is also the author of the book Becoming a Leader: A Road Map for My Daughter and the Aspiring Leader.
