It examined orientation, assessment, feedback, development, and evaluation procedures, as well as ways to improve leadership development. Findings reveal wide variations from unit to unit in criteria for successful leadership and the satisfaction of both senior and junior leaders with existing procedures. These findings can be used by the sponsor to strengthen the link between institutional and operational leadership training.
