Most of you know Edward Plant as co-founder and head coach at the Institute for Couples in Business. Others know him through his work at The Business League. Some of you may also know him as wine lover, doting dad and husband to wife Bec.
But many may not know much about Ed’s former life (not to be confused with his double life as a Prince Harry look-a-like)…
Ed served in the Australian Army for 17 years. Having trained as an engineer, he worked his way up to the rank of Major. He was responsible for leading troops in combat and non-combat missions in Iraq, Papua New Guinea, Singapore and Malaysia.
In 2010 Ed left the army to pursue a vision more closely aligned with his personal values. He began sharing his wealth of knowledge and experience around leadership to support business owners to lead their teams to bigger, sustainable success.
And in this episode of Boardrooms and Bedrooms, Ed shares the details of what his life looked like back then, and how his opposition to the Army’s brand of leadership inspires the work he does to support couples in business today.
