Title Center for Army Leadership's Response to 'Empirically Based Leadership'.
Publication Date Feb 2013

Abstract THE CENTER FOR ARMY LEADERSHIP commends Major Sean McDonald for winning the 2012 Douglas MacArthur Military Leadership Writing award for his article, Empirically Based Leadership: Integrating the Science of Psychology in Building a Better Leadership Model, which appears in this issue of Military Review. However, his conclusion that the Leader Requirements Model (LRM) found in Field Manual 6-22, Army Leadership, was not developed based on scientific research and leadership theory is inaccurate, and it has the potential to mislead Military Review readers and the Army as a whole. That during his time at Fort Leavenworth, Major McDonald did not take advantage of his close proximity to the very researchers who developed and validated the leadership doctrine of FM 6-22 is unfortunate. Had he contacted us, we would have gladly discussed the strong research and theoretical foundation of the LRM and could have helped him avoid making incorrect assumptions. We often help students understand the model and discuss topics that would extend the Army's understanding of leadership.
