PRELIMINARY ASSESSMENT OF THREE NCO LEADERSHIP PREPARATION TRAINING SYSTEMS.
HOOD, PAUL D.; AND OTHERS
THREE ALTERNATIVE LEADERSHIP TRAINING SYSTEMS WERE STUDIED TO EVALUATE WHAT MIGHT BE THE MOST FEASIBLE METHOD OF IDENTIFYING AND TRAINING POTENTIAL JUNIOR NONCOMMISSIONED OFFICERS, AS EARLY AS POSSIBLE IN THEIR ARMY CAREERS. TRAINING OBJECTIVES WERE DEFINED AND TRAINING MATERIALS AND ASSESSMENT DEVICES WERE DEVELOPED AND REFINED FOR APPLICATION IN THE THREE METHODS. CONSIDERABLE INFORMATION WAS OBTAINED ABOUT ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS MOST CONDUCIVE TO SUCCESSFUL LEADERSHIP TRAINING, FACTORS WHICH AFFECT TRAINEE LEADER MORALE AND ATTITUDES, ACCELERATION OR COMPRESSION OF SOME TECHNICAL INSTRUCTION, AND RELATION OF SELECTION VARIABLES TO SUBSEQUENT PERFORMANCE. THE MOST FEASIBLE METHOD WAS FOUND TO BE THAT FEATURING FORMAL LEADERSHIP TRAINING IN A SEPARATE TWO-WEEK COURSE BETWEEN BASIC COMBAT TRAINING AND THE ADVANCED INDIVIDUAL TRAINING (AIT) PROGRAM, FOLLOWED BY PRACTICAL, ON THE JOB LEADERSHIP TRAINING IN THE AIT CYCLE.
