Within the Department of the Army, as is the case with other Federal agencies and private businesses, there is an increasing concern for the future and the availability of quality leaders to make the transition from the present to the future with maximum benefit. This concern is well-founded and warrants examination with the purpose of establishing the current situation, what is desirable, and a strategy to reduce the distance between two circumstances. The issue of military leadership has been receiving special attention for a period of time now. This study has been conducted to examine the development of military leaders, compare the nature of military leadership vis-a-vis civilian leadership, and to propose a strategy for improving performance in the area of civilian leadership development. An examination of leadership development in two private sector corporations has been done to provide a balance to the issue of military versus civilian leadership. Considerable research into contemporary literature on the subject has been done to gain an appreciation for the many and varied views on leadership, future requirements for leaders, and the feasibility of training leaders.
