The centre for army leadership has a huge range of resources for exploring leadership - and it’s a lot more inclusive than the stereotype you’ll have in your mind!


Of particular use will be the resources page: https://www.army.mod.uk/who-we-are/our-schools-and-colleges/centre-for-army-leadership/leadership-resources/

Turn the Ship Around by David Marquet is a great book describing how leaders create the conditions for success, rather than directly deliver the success themselves, through Intent Based Leadership.

This is my personal favourite - I’ll be interested in feedback on if it’s any use whatsoever to anyone else!

Defeat into Victory by Bill Slim (Field Marshal William Joseph Slim, 1st Viscount Slim, KG, GCB, GCMG, GCVO, GBE, DSO, MC, PC to give him his full title!) is the leadership reference guide for me. It covers the complete range of culture, approach, practical steps, personal charisma etc etc, in the most challenging of contexts imaginable.
