Building engaging and adaptive leaders (9 February 2015)

The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Leadership Development Seminar (SLDS) returned for the second year on 6 Feb and brought together local, external, and overseas speakers to share their thoughts and insights on leadership and leadership development. 

SLDS 2015 aimed to encourage SAF leaders to apply leadership development knowledge and be effective ground commanders in the SAF. The theme of the one-day seminar was Building Engaging and Adaptive Leaders with the focus on adaptability and engaging leadership at the tactical levels. 

In his welcome address, Commandant SAFTI Military Institute, Rear-Admiral (RADM) Giam Hock Koon explained the rationale behind this year's theme: "Increasingly, the environment in which the SAF has to operate in will be volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous.

Pointer Journal Vol.40 No. 4

We mark the end of 2014 with the final issue of the year, POINTER, Vol 40, No. 4. As we wind down to the end of the year, we reflect on the many and varied events which have taken place, both globally and closer back home and the impact that they have. Examples are the deaths brought about by the Ebola virus epidemic, the on-going unrest from the conflicts caused by the establishment of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (also known as the ISIS or ISIL), the annexation of Crimea, and the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 in Ukraine, just to name a few. All these drive home the important message that Singapore should not take its peace and security for granted but continue to strive to develop and grow to remain strong and independent. As we look forward to our 50thanniversary next year, we can celebrate how far Singapore has come and the achievements we have attained as a people. At the same time, we can also look forward and ahead to what we should change and adapt for a better future. Read more >>>
