Instruction in principles of war and purposes, fundamentals, and characteristics of the defense provides the necessary knowledge base for meaningful contextual treatment of Troop leading procedures (TLP). Instruction in decision-making, planning, and execution processes of the TLP are followed by a refocus on the critical leadership task of communicating the plan using the standard military format. The course addresses motivational theory and techniques, the role and actions of leaders, and risk assessment. The course closes with instruction in small unit battle drills to facilitate practice application and further leader development during labs and situational training exercises (STX).
