RMAS Commandant Publishes his Leadership Lessons.

The Commandant of the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst, Major General Paul Nanson CBE will be releasing a book on the 26th December entitled 'Stand up Straight'. This will contain simple and transformative leadership lessons that have been learnt at Sandhurst, employed on operations, and taken into everyday life. The aim is to bust some myths, drive some positive habits, and trumpet the ‘Serve to Lead’ ethos.

The one thing all of these individuals have in common? Their world-class Sandhurst training.

Stand Up Straight applies 10 simple but transformative lessons that every officer is taught during their time at the world-famous military academy. Modern and counter-intuitive, with its lessons ranging from making your bed and ironing your shirt to achieving discipline, emotional intelligence, resilience and fast decision-making under pressure, the book draws on first-hand experiences from war as well as the leadership lessons taught at Sandhurst.

The result is a groundbreaking personal development book that can easily be applied to every aspect of civilian life - work, home, confidence, anxiety, family and friends.
