USAR 2020 - Applied Leadership II


The course focuses principally on officership, providing an extensive examination of the unique purpose, roles, and obligations of commissioned officers. It includes a detailed look at the origin of the Army’s institutional values and their practical application in decision making and leadership. At the core is the Basic Course’s Capstone Case Study in Officership. This five lesson exercise traces the Army’s successes and failures as it evolved from the Vietnam War to the present, placing previous lessons on leadership and officership in a real world context that directly affects the future of the students who plan on attending the Advanced Course. This course, more than any before it, draws the various components of values, communications, decision making, and leadership together to focus on a career as a commissioned officer. Upon completion of this course, students should possess a fundamental understanding of both leadership and officership, and demonstrate the ability to apply this understanding in real-world situations.
