Abstract:

Leading and team leadership are related, but distinct. In todays environment, senior leaders must master both competencies. In what follows, we argue Army leaders need to develop--in more rigorous and deliberate ways--team leadership skills that go beyond the basic leadership competencies. Leaders of highly successful teams embody the leadership traits already familiar to us, but in even greater measures and at more sophisticated levels. Given the need for 21st-century Army leaders versed in full-spectrum operations, we assert that specific team leadership skills can provide competitive advantage for senior field-grade officers. The team leadership model we offer addresses some concepts not currently discussed in professional military education.
