Abstract The Deputy Commanding General for Initial Military Training requested research to identify and examine factors impacting Advanced Individual Training (AIT) Platoon Sergeant (PSG) and Squad Leader (SL) performance and motivation (1) to understand better their unique duty expectations and how to optimize training for their new positions and responsibilities, (2) to define the stressors affecting AIT PSGs' and SLs' performance and identify strategies/tools to reduce their impact on PSGs' and SLs' effectiveness and motivation, and (3) to examine the support and resourcing provided to PSGs and SLs to perform their duties in order to identify best practices that could be applied across AIT. The findings from this effort provide critical information to commanders, decision makers, and training designers regarding the effectiveness of the AIT Platoon Sergeants Course and unit certification programs, as well as identify practices to enhance AIT PSG and SL performance and motivation.
