Force of ethical leaders
FLTLT Phil Mayne and
IN THE ADF, leadership is defined
as "the process of influencing
others in order to gain their will-
ing consent in the ethical pursuit
of missions". Now, Air Force has
produced a guide that will help
members gain a greater under-
standing of ethical leadership.
CAF AIRMSHL Geoff Brown
launched The Royal Australian Air
Force Leadership Companion at
the Commanding Officers' Call at
RAAF Base Glenbrook in August.
Produced by the Air Force
team at the Centre of Defence
Leadership and Ethics (CDLE), the
Leadership Companion is a guide for
ethical leadership to ultimately
enable Australia's air power.
Deputy Director Air Force
Leadership WGCDR Lisa
Macnaughtan said the publication
examined the human element of
the Air Force profession, with an
emphasis on social mastery.
"It is the first time that Air Force
has clearly articulated leadership
guidance for its members," WGCDR
"It enables us to have the conver-
sation about the human elements that
underpin the air power aspect of the
profession of arms."
WGCDR Peter Gilbert, formerly
the project lead while at CDLE, said
the Leadership Companion would
help personnel to develop their
character, professional ethics,
"followership" and leadership with-
in the three professional develop-
ment domains of formal education
and training, individual commitment,
and coaching and mentoring in the
He said Air Force leadership was
unique in its "enduring culture of
workplace collaboration and self-
discipline, as opposed to imposed
discipline and overt direction".
"Others have mistakenly
interpreted our leadership style as
being rather casual and informal,"
WGCDR Gilbert said.
"However, the high premium that
air power places on agility requires
a leadership style that prepares and
empowers Air Force personnel to
contribute as both individuals and
Launching the publication,
AIRMSHL Brown said Air Force
leadership favoured expertise over
"You can say that, at the most
general level, leadership is lead-
ership. But Air Force has some
specific characteristics," AIRMSHL
"We value certain things in the
leadership continuum, such as pro-
fessional expertise. That actually
gives us a pretty good result most of
"The true value of this book
is that it talks about the way we
actually do it and what we consid-
er important in that. I think it's a
good articulation of leadership in Air
Force and I congratulate the team at
CDLE for their work."
WGCDR Macnaughtan said the
team at CDLE spent nearly two
years collaborating, writing and
reviewing before CAF's approval of
the publication in June this year.
"Through this process, input
from across Air Force was
incorporated, with the content also
influenced by Navy and Army, and
our international allies," she said.
"The Leadership Companion,
while drawing on the expertise of
other military organisations, was
designed specifically for the RAAF."
Limited copies of the
publication are available and
distribution of these copies to units
is under way. An electronic version
will also soon be available on the
