Military leaders have been some of the greatest leaders of all time. However, many have been quietly leading in the shadows of their military service. Military leaders have a distinct difference in their leadership requirements compared to their civilian counterparts – they have the potential of seeing their people fall in combat.
In today’s episode, I have the delight of interview Colonel (retired) John Conrad. Colonel Conrad was a Canadian Army Officer and now currently works as an executive within the Albertan government.
Leading From the Front Topics
During the interview, we the following topics:
- What led him down the leadership road.
- What have been some of his greatest challenges as a leader.
- What is the greatest success he has enjoyed as a leader.
- What would be the largest setback he has had as a leader.
- What is one piece of advice for leaders starting their journey.
- Where he thinks most leaders fail today.
Colonel Conrad has written two books to date, both of which I own and highly recommend for reading. If they are of interest to you then have a look at them via the following links:
- What the Thunder Said: Reflections of Canadian Army Officer in Kandahar
- Among the Walking Wounded: Soldiers, Survival, and PTSD
