  POSTED ON: Tuesday, June 6, 2023 3:01 AM by The Stockdale Center



Fom Host Janet Ioli: 

In this episode, I talk to Joe Thomas, director of the James Stockdale Center for ethical leadership at the US Naval Academy and an expert in leadership development. One of the  questions that's recurring in the consulting and coaching work I do with executives is: “How do we develop leaders of the future?” If anyone knows about leadership development and creating leaders for the future, it's Joe. So join us as we have a very enlightening conversation.

Dr. Joe Thomas served as a Lieutenant colonel for 24 years in the Marine Corps, as Director at the Gen John A. Lejeune Leadership Institute at Marine Corps University, as an instructor at Marine Aviation Weapons and Tactics Squadron 1, as a Battalion Officer at the US Naval Academy, and as the Senior Education Officer at Marine Corps Training and Education Command.

In addition to years of teaching experience in the Naval Academy’s Leadership, Ethics, and Law Department, he’s taught at the University of Notre Dame, the University of Maryland, and George Washington University.

He has published six books on leadership and ethics. Joe holds master’s degrees from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University and the US Army War College and a PhD from George Mason University. Joe’s latest book is Developing Cross-Cultural Competence for Leaders.

Some of the other books we spoke about today were The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People: Powerful Lessons in Personal Change by Stephen R. Covey, Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones by James Clear, and The Daily Stoic: 366 Meditations on Wisdom, Perseverance, and the Art of Living by Ryan Holiday.
