Hear the thoughts of the USAF Chief...

Summary

The Chiefs are listening, are you engaging? This podcast is an in-depth, candid conversation about The USAF’s personnel challenges, the selection and education of leaders, as well as strategy, warfighting, and the books that have influenced the Chiefs of the Service. Accessing the candid thoughts of a senior leader from your service, another service or from an allied force is a rare opportunity afforded by this podcast. General Goldfein brings the credibility of a command pilot as well as operational experience from the Gulf War and Serbia where his F-16 was shot down. As a member of Air Force, you are expected to engage with your chain of command. They want to know your views and drive continuous improvement. What are the channels available to you for engaging with your senior leaders? How would you formulate your message to ensure your voice gets raised? Have you taken the opportunity to publish your thoughts via reputable online forums like The Runway or requested your message be raised through the chain of command?
