a LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHY FOR 21ST CENTURY TEAMS

DISCUSSIONS WITH EXPERTS AND PRACTITIONERS OF MISSION COMMAND TO INFORM AND ENLIGHTEN

What is mission Command?

If a team or organization wants to be competitive, then they must be quick, agile, and flexible. most of all, they must adapt to their environment quicker than their competitors.  This is the value of mission command. This philosophy of leadership is characterized by decentralization, situational decision-making, empowerment, and individual initiative.  

Mission Command works but it is not easy to implement. it requires a real understanding of people, systems, organizations, and the nature of chaos. The mission command series is designed to provide you a holistic understanding of this vital philosophy of leadership.
