CMSAF Leadership Library: January 2023

Secretary of the Air Force Public Affairs


Our Air Force is at an inflection point, where the leaders we build today will shape the service for decades to come. Those leaders need to continually grow, develop and challenge themselves - and each other. I'm excited to share with you five new books and three podcasts that will help refine your skills as leaders and Airmen.

As lifelong learners, our Airmen will continue to remain the greatest strategic competitive advantage we have over any adversary. I'm honored to serve alongside you.

Aim High -

Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force
