    Where'd you source this gem of info?

    Just thought this might be worth putting up. It was taken from the 'Joining Up Instructions' prior to No. 1 IOT in November, hope it helps.

    The leadership styles taught are also going to change, introducing "empowered leadership" as well as "action centred leadership"...any guesses as to the real meaning of this...mine is that it's more about the leader "empowering" team members to be more involved in decision-making/planning...
    The 'empowered leadership' style you're asking about is 'Mission Command'. The new IOT course introduces the principles and application of 'Mission Command' - not a new concept, but very much a key focus in the RAF at present.

    Mission Command will be introduced in Term 2 - a google search for Mission Command and the Prussian concept Auftragstatik will yield results worthy of study if you want to know more.

    Also worth checking out the web for details of the "Leading in an Empowered Organisation" or LEO course which a lot of big companies (including the NHS) are sending their staff on. One of the questions on my board interview was " What is the difference between leadership and management?".... food for thought chaps and chapesses!

    I imagine you're quite right, but would recommend people think about what the *military* perspective regarding these subjects is.

    The RAF published a fantastic book - "Air Power Leadership - Theory and Practice" - a reference text on current thinking. If you can get hold of a copy, it's well worth reading in detail.

    One of the essays is "Leadership, Management and Command - the Officer's Trinity" by Howieson and Kahn - required reading, particularly because the nature of command is not a topic addressed within civilian industry.

    The "British Defence Doctrine" is available for download as a .pdf on the internet - well worth reading also regarding these issues.

    Good luck to all those preparing for No.1 IOT!

    Just got a question about it though:

    I've heard the 'IOT Laptop' rumour a few times now and to be honest, I'm extremely sceptical about it.

    Does anyone have any more details about the IT facilities on the new IOT courses? If there's going to be data lines in the rooms then I'd consider getting a laptop if I get in, and hence, would like to start saving for one (unless of course this magical rumour about the issued laptops happens to be true). On the other hand is there just going to be internet access from one or two communial pc's in the buildings?

    Whilst on my Fam. Visit work was being undertaken and new computers (desktops, not laptops) were being installed in every room. These, from what I understand will give access to the local Intranet!! There is, however, a seperate computer lab in the building with Internet access aswell as flat screen panels for presentations etc.

    All the rooms in College Hall were undergoing the same refurb.

    Cheers,

    GH.

    p.s My advice is no need to buy a laptop, save up and buy a car instead!! You'll find out what I mean during a Fam.Visit.

    Thanks Groundhugger

    So I'm assuming there's no internet in the actual rooms then - just intranet. What's the betting the pc's in the rooms have dvd drives?

    I'm assuming that the car is to store stuff in like clothes and a duvet? Already got one of those! But I've heard that people will go and buy a £50 M.O.T failure, park it at Cranwell for 6 months and put all their junk in it!

    The intranet will let you access the internet, just means that it's on a network.

    Possibly a silly question...

    During IOT are you entitled to a married quarter? I know it's communal living for the first 10 weeks, but thereafter what is the official stance?

    I've tried the AFCOs and even some of the key personnel at Cranwell, but the information I get is always a bit sketchy. ( A lot of supposition and opinion but very little hard, documented policy).

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    So he's in the bar...and you're locked away in a darkened room with no company apart from a computer... I'm surprised he let you out of the kitchen! :rolleyes:

    In a way, best way to say it is Intranet is the internal on base site, nobody can see it from outside the internal network

    Internet is really the term for pages viewable by everyone on the net
