NATIONAL HARBOR, Md. (AFNS) -- Lt. Gen. Brian T. Kelly, Deputy Chief of Staff for Manpower, Personnel and Services, outlined the Air Force’s strategy for the “Airmen We Need” campaign at the Air, Space, Cyber Conference, Sept. 17, 2018, in National Harbor.

To further their development, Kelly said total force Airmen must have proper manning, be trained to combat future adversaries, remain joint-minded and mission focused, set clear expectations and mentorship and empower their subordinates to lead and make decisions. 

“We are at the epicenter of our opportunity to impact our most important weapon system—our Airmen,” said Kelly. 

Additionally, in order to maintain fighting forces, Kelly said a talent management system outlining the Air Force values, rewards and incentives needs implementing to empower performance. 

Kelly said the Air Force is working diligently to grow Airmen into qualified leaders throughout their careers.
