Episode 2: Leadership Development in the Australian Army
How do other organizations prepare for the future of work? How do they look at leadership development? Why is this episode special you wonder? Because we are going to dive into a totally new space - the army. Joining us on this exploration is Jamie Martin, Director of the Centre for Australian Army Leadership.
Jamie has an incredible story! He has led teams of up to 2,000 as a Helicopter Force commander and pilot. As the Commanding Officer of the 5th Aviation Regiment in the Australian Army, he led missions across the SW Pacific and Australia deployed on security missions, amphibious operations, and national disasters like floods and bushfires. Now, in his new role, Jamie is developing programs to grow the leaders of 2040.
We talk all about his experience of becoming a leader at an early age, how the Australian Army thinks in terms of leadership development now and for the future, and the lessons he's learning along the way.
