The Army Leader

By The Cove July 1, 2019 was created by a former soldier to create a space for serving British Army soldiers and officers to share their leadership experiences, offer advice and tips, and provide the tools for others to develop themselves and their organisations.

It is unashamedly not purely focused on officers. An interest in good leadership begins from a soldier’s first appointment in command and should be nurtured and helped by their own leaders.

Influenced and inspired by US and Australian professional military education websites, aims, in its own small way, to improve the practise of leadership in the British Army.
