Army Leader Development Strategy 2013
Leader development is fundamental to our Army, particularly to an Army of preparation. We are currently out of balance given the emphasis we have had to place on warfighting. This strategy will help the Army re-balance the three crucial leader development components of training, education, and experience. This Army Leader Development Strategy (ALDS) provides vision and guidance on ends, ways, and means for developing leaders of all cohorts that exercise Mission Command while planning, preparing, executing, and assessing Unified Land Operations to meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Leaders must understand the strategic environment, be able to think critically and creatively, visualize solutions, and describe and communicate crucial information to achieve shared understanding, collaborate, and build teams.
