Would you rather have a teammate that truly wants to do their job for the sake of the mission, or a teammate who is just going through the motions to advance themselves? In this episode, I interview Major Chris Carr, currently serving as an Exchange Officer at Headquarters Air Command, Royal Australian Air Force Base Glenbrook, New South Wales Australia. We talk about our origin story, the stigma of the non-selected officer and why we shouldn’t devalue their expertise, and how we need to recognize their unique position within the Air Force that can be a huge advantage if leveraged correctly.
Major Christine “Chris” Carr is a Logistics Readiness Officer and INDO-PACOM Foreign Area Officer currently posted to Headquarters Air Command, Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Glenbrook, New South Wales Australia in Logistics Plans. She received her commission from Florida State University and has been assigned to units throughout the Indo-Pacific, Europe, and the Middle East. As the proud daughter of USAF MSgt Gregory Carr (ret) and Feng-Chu Carr, she continues the military family tradition as an exchange officer in Australia.
