After General Petraeus arrived to reform Mosul, he met with all the formal Generals to form a new government to build a rapport to see who the big influencers were and who held power. The reason Major General Petraeus chose to meet with the governors and provincial councils is due to the fact of them having a symbolic influence on activities within their jurisdiction. He used his leadership skills to help mentor the generals and to help restore any issues they were currently having.

After 15 weeks listening to industrial leaders, group presentations on leadership and opinions from students both local and aboard, the general consensus one draws is that leaders and leadership are not a dichotomy. In the classroom, principles of leadership and team building may be taught while industrial leaders such as the CEO of second chance properties, encourage others to experience leadership first handed.

The first occasion was at the Graduation and Induction Ceremony in Sandton. Listening to the key note speakers, Raymond Ackerman and some of the previous year graduates, I questioned within myself how I, someone who grew up so disadvantaged, could ever compete with these highly intelligent and successful people. The second occasion was the first day of classes at Henley where I sat and listened attentively to all the questions and statements raised by my fellow delegates. Wow, everyone was so knowledgeable I thought, what and how am I going to contribute to this group without looking foolish.

One of the most engaging of the talks was delivered by Captain Chris Stewart (Ret’d) who was a member of the Army Intelligence Corps. He traced the story of two of our WWI diggers who had served and died on the Western Front, through to their commanding officer and, ultimately to Commodore Dacre Smyth. Commodore Smyth served as first lieutenant aboard HMAS BATAAN prior to and during the ship’s first deployment to Korea in 1950-51. A very tall, capable, quietly spoken man, Commodore Smyth was the very essence of the Royal Navy type of officer. Your correspondent remembers serving under him in 1949.
