The Centre for Army Leadership (CAL) is the British Army’s custodian of leadership debate, thinking and doctrine. It seeks to stimulate discussion about leadership and so further the institution’s knowledge of best practice and experience. Leadership Insights are published periodically by the CAL to feed and shape the leadership debate in the Army through a range of themes and ideas designed to inform and challenge its readership. 

CAL has just published such an Insight by Officer Cadet Chris Mahoney who is currently at RMAS.  He served eight years in the ranks in both 2 FUSILIERS and then 1 GREN GDs and will be commissioned into 1 FUSILIERS in April this year.

He has drawn from this experience to write this interesting and thought provoking article.  Leadership Insight by OCdt Maloney
