As young leaders, we are frequently placed in positions where we need to formulate strategy and oversee operational exercises. The decisions we make can have profound unintended outcomes, and it is critical to our futures that we consistently use good judgement. This seminar will explore the leadership concepts of the US Marine Corps, and examine how their philosophy can be applied within the context of security operations. Facilitator John McKay will discuss the key concepts of the book ‘Warfighting’, and will guide attendees towards the application of these lessons. To maximize the value and relevancy of the session, it is recommended that all attendees read the book, “warfighting” prior to attending. (a link to the free PDF is below).
