Foundation of Leadership

(1/4 course, Unbilled)

This course examines the challenges of leading teams in the complex operational environment. The course highlights dimensions of terrain analysis, patrolling, and operation orders. Further study of the theoretical basis of the Army Leadership Requirements Model explores the dynamics of adaptive leadership in the context of military operations. MSC 202 prepares Cadets for MSC 301. Cadets develop greater self awareness as they assess their own leadership styles and practice communication and team building skills. Case studies give insight into the importance and practice of teamwork and tactics in real-world scenarios. This course requires participation in physical training (PT) for one hour three days per week. The PT component is a combination of strength conditioning, running, and cardiovascular exercises, and requires a passing score on the Army Physical Fitness Test (contracted students only) by the end of the semester.
