EP029: Humor and Leadership: A Conversation with Angry Staff Officer


In a field otherwise centered around seriousness and a proud history of command and control, we take a look at the playful humor and leadership style of one of the Army’s most humorous and outspoken Star Wars; Angry Staff Officer.

In our discussion this week, Angry Staff Officer and our hosts talk about everything from doctrine to leadership and what inspires him to see the Army through a lens of humor. This episode addresses everything from Yoda to haircuts everything in between.

Angry Staff Officer’s Brief Bio:
Angry Staff Officer describes himself as an on-again, off-again angry staff officer, who made the odd jump from enlisted infantry to engineer officer and is now meandering the warrens of Army doctrine, one dog-eared page at a time. He is a member of the Military Writers Guild, and continues to be one of the most active members of the greater military writing community.
