Leadership takes wing – Strategic value of the Executive Officer

A session at The 6th Annual Executive Officers’ Conference 2014

  • Air Commodore Andrew Elfverson

In a complex and pivotal post where scope and
responsibilities vary from department to department, one
of the greatest challenges faced by Executive Officers is
effectively communicating the role’s value perception. An
Executive Officer must be part strategist, part facilitator, but
how does the function really line up with the senior executive
level’s expectations and how can that position be leveraged
in a constantly changing landscape? Air Commodore Andrew
Elfverson reflects on his own journey through the ranks as he
identifies some of the key skills and opportunities to take the
leap from officer to leader. Topics include:
• Dealing with conflict and crisis strategically
• Defining and refining communication channels to deliver
information and influence change
• Understanding and implementing a strategic approach to
stakeholder engagement
