From the Green Notebook

By The Cove April 19, 2021

Walk into any organisation in our military and there is one thing I guarantee you will find on a desk or in a cargo pocket: a small, green, government-issued notebook. it doesn’t matter whether the Soldier is a sergeant or a general officer, odds are they will have one of these military mainstays in their possession.

Driven by a team passionate about leader development who want to help others to lead with the best version of themselves, From The Green Notebook was created to provide a platform for leaders to help each other by sharing lessons learned: lessons that come from our own green notebooks.
