Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
"Joint Leadership" is an impactful guide that shares game-changing information for any mid-level to senior-level military officer who finds themselves assigned to a Joint (multi-service) or Combined (multi-national) military organization. These officers have a good grasp of operating and leading personnel in their respective services at the tactical level, but leading at an operational-level headquarters, which includes leading personnel from other services, requires different methods. This book seeks to define those environments and offers insights into how they are different and what those officers need to know to navigate the Joint and Combined environments.
Description
"Joint Leadership" is an impactful guide that shares game-changing information for any mid-level to senior-level military officer who finds themselves assigned to a Joint (multi-service) or Combined (multi-national) military organization. These officers have a good grasp of operating and leading personnel in their respective services at the tactical level, but leading at an operational-level headquarters, which includes leading personnel from other services, requires different methods. This book seeks to define those environments and offers insights into how they are different and what those officers need to know to navigate the Joint and Combined environments. This book first offers a definition of what constitutes the "Joint" environment and the "Combined" environment. It further delves into the rich history and traditions of the different military services and seeks to provide some understanding of their unique organizational cultures and sub-cultures. When writing this book, author Ted Roberts asked himself some questions… "What do I wish I had known when I went to my first Joint assignment? What do I wish my supervisors would have known? What would I like to tell an officer who finds themselves departing for their first or subsequent assignment to a Joint or Combined organization?" His book seeks to answer those questions and help the reader mentally prepare for their role as a leader in that new environment. His hope is that military officers assigned to those organizations will find that this book offers valuable insights and continues to serve as a helpful resource and reference for them as they lead in those organizations.
