Bite Size #87: Commander Dean Thompson – The Importance of Leadership and Followership in the Royal Australian Navy

In this bite size from episode #57, Commander Dean Thompson  talks about the concept of leadership and followership and how both are vital to the smooth operation of the Australian Navy. From operating the bridge of a ship all the way to the upper echelons of command – creating an environment where people can bring up a concern and feel heard without being put down or criticised is paramount to creating a high performance culture.

Dean also talks about a concept he has been using in his own work where ‘leadership is love’ and how this can be such an important framework when fostering a connected team environment.
