Our New book arrived just now "Mission Command: The Who, What, Where, When and Why An Anthology". It was an honor to have work on this book project with this great group of guys. Be sure to check it out and give us you feedback.

I wrote a Chapter in the book with policing in mind Improving Policing with Mission Command and a Community Problem Oriented Police. This is a great leadership book that is really centered in developing trust and true decentralized control. It is what we in policing have been talking about in policing for 30 plus years. This book shows you how to Teach Them! Train them! Trust them and let them do their jobs!!!

In the chaos and uncertainty of modern war, our troops must be empowered to make decisions, take the initiative, and lead boldly. This is Mission Command: a command culture, leadership style, and operating concept that has been embraced by armed forces the world over. While the U.S. Military and many of our allies have formally adopted Mission Command, much work remains to truly understand and implement this style of leadership.

In this anthology, 12 authors from 3 nations (United States, United Kingdom, and Norway) offer diverse perspectives on the topic of Mission Command as it relates to their service in the military, law enforcement, government, and private sector. Real-world examples supported by in-depth research provide the who, what, when, where, and why of Mission Command, identifying opportunities to improve how we lead our teams.

Topics and authors include: - Unit Cohesion (Joe Labarbera) -Mission Command at Sea (Tommy Krabberød) -The Historical Evolution of Mission Command (Donald Vandergriff) - Improving Army Doctrine (Regina Parker) - Military Campaign Analysis (Gerry Long) - Organizational Culture (Thomas Rebuck) -Mission Command in Garrison (Darrell Fawley) - Training and Leadership for Mission Command (Chad Foster) -Mission Command and Complex Operations (Grant Martin) -Fitness and Mission Command (Daniel Markert & Scott Sonnon) -Civil Policing and Mission Command (Fred Leland) ...and more!
