Abstract:

The Army can declare that leader development and training are inseparable that does not mean they are. Analysis from this study provides a review of the leadership doctrinal manuals and identifies the absence of a concise and coherent doctrine which molds leader development and training together. The doctrinal manuals provide multiple lists, frameworks, and principles. Without effective action the frameworks and principles become nothing more than meaningless words. Doctrine that is not used is of no use. In order for leader development and training to be inseparable the Army must provide the force with valid leader development constructed that clearly link the training management cycle to the doctrinal leadership frameworks and outlines the hierarchy of leader, team, and unit development. This provides two such constructs. Comprehending the linkage between the doctrinal leadership frameworks and the training management cycle is key for effective leader development. The study expounds upon these constructs, proposing a strategy for translating our leadership and training doctrine into action. The strategy put forth will enable brigade commanders to better develop leaders capable of leveraging the units combat power through their leadership.
