Accelerate Change: Empowered Airmen

 

Empowering Airmen

Welcome to the CSAF Leadership Library. This is a new way of looking at the traditional reading list – a fluid set of media that I have personally explored – that changes and evolves as novel ideas are published, recorded, and debated.

The Leadership Library will have periodic additions as I come across media and ideas I’d like to share to generate dialogue. My aim is that this Leadership Library sparks conversations for you with fellow Airmen, with your family, and with your friends.

 

Sincerely,

CHARLES Q. BROWN, JR.
General, U.S. Air Force
Chief of Staff

History

Gen. Ronald Fogleman created the CSAF Professional Reading Program in 1996 to develop a common frame of reference among Air Force members -- officers, enlisted, and civilians -- to help each of us become better, more effective advocates of air and space power. Each CSAF since then has enhanced and continued the Professional Reading Program.

In 2021, Gen. Charles Q. Brown Jr., who revised the program by renaming it as the CSAF Leadership Library and adding new media sources including podcasts and documentaries.
