Abstract:

For this report, observer-controllers evaluated the leadership performance of platoon leaders and platoon sergeants during three rotations at the U.S. Armys National Training Center. Platoon leaders and platoon sergeants were evaluated in terms of leadership tasks proposed as a guide for the Armys leader development system. The overall results suggested that the proposed leadership tasks are related to unit performance and that the leadership framework provides a meaningful basis for measuring organizational leadership processes. However, improved methods are needed to yield measures that are specific to either a particular leader in a unit or to the separate components of leadership performance.
