The strength of the relationship with our Kiwi friends across the Tasman was forged long ago during the ANZAC Campaign. In addition to our strong military heritage, we also share a lot of commonalities in our approach to leadership.
The New Zealand Cadet Forces Leadership Handbook is a very simple read aimed at a junior audience. Its chapters however, contain lessons that are appropriate to all ranks and can be used to develop unit-based lessons for junior staff. It covers:
- An Introduction to Leadership
- Principles of Leadership
- Approaches to Leadership
- Leadership Styles
- Issuing of Orders
- Orders and Regularity
- Roles and Duties of Non-commissioned Officers
- Managing Subordinates
Flip through the content of the handbook and consider giving elements of it to your junior staff to present on as part of their professional development regime.
