Title Improving the Leader Development Experience in Army Units.
Publication Date Apr 2013
Media Count 30p
Personal Author D. C. Crissman
Abstract The Center for Army Leadership's 2011 annual assessment of attitudes and perceptions on leader development (CASAL) identified Develops Others as the lowest-rated leader competency for the fifth year in a row with just over half of Army leaders regarded as effective at developing others by their subordinates. The CASAL further revealed one fourth of those surveyed indicated their units placed a low or very low priority on leader development activities. Feedback also highlighted varying degrees of leader and subordinate understanding of their individual responsibilities as givers and receivers of leader development. These trends span multiple years and clearly illustrate a deficiency in the perceived effectiveness of Army efforts to raise the next generation in the eyes of its most important audience today's junior leaders. The decade of attention and energy demanded by the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan has diluted the Army's knowledge and experience base of what right looks like in leader development domain. The Army must now seize the opportunity to improve the consistency and effectiveness of its unit-level leader development efforts to deliver capable leaders to the Army of 2020 and beyond.
