Abstract:

The U.S. Army is experiencing a crisis in leadership and is struggling to identify the problems and develop solutions to a problem, which if not solved will become more vexing. Even with good leadership the Armys personnel issues of retention and recruiting continue to present challenges. It is imperative that all people are fully trained and utilized to maximize their contributions in a less is more fiscal and force structure environment. Every persons potential must be tapped, especially women who will comprise more of the force structure. Mentoring is a time-honored method of identifying the best and brightest and pulling them up the ladder. Mentoring women will pay dividends to the individuals involved and the U.S. Army by developing individual potential, inculcating organizational values and fully utilizing personnel skills to advance the mission of the organization.
