Welcome to Fen's Thoughts. The purpose of this is to share my thoughts about a range of subjects, mostly centered around leadership - military and otherwise - and to (hopefully) continue learning and growing in response to yur feedback.
Over the last 2 years or so I have developed an acute interest in 21st century military leadership and training. What will be required of a leader in an incredibly complex, and rapidly changing world that moves and evolves, often faster than we have time to consider? How do you develop soldiers who are required to live in the structured military culture, and yet teach them the skills they need to survive and defeat an enemy who they cannot often see, using tools that prior to this time where outside of the military's purview, in a behemoth organization that by it's very nature is tied to history, and tradition?
There will also be a lot of thoughts about COL John Boyd, who came up with the OODA Loop, Observe, Orient, Decide and Act. Boyd's Law is an amazing tool for all leaders and organizations looking to ensure that they remain relevant and forward looking in a fast moving, ever changing world.
So, welcome to the discussion. I have no idea where it will lead, but no doubt that it will be a hell of a ride. Thanks for making the trip with me!
