What is military leadership?

Military leadership involves making critical decisions, often in high-pressure situations with consequential risks. Effective military leaders ask the right questions and think strategically. Military leaders also build and motivate teams: this entails developing individuals’ talents and recognising successes to create a unified team confident to accomplish mission assignments.

Join us for a panel discussion about how to lead from the frontline. Hear from our Executive MBA Armed Forces alumni as they share their challenges, successes and how the Cambridge EMBA helped improve their skills in their roles.
