Training Leaders with Sound Films and Group Discussion Techniques.
Lange, Carl J.; And Others
A leadership course for Army officers used sound films for the presentation of officer problems, based on descriptions of leadership situations collected from Army officers and NCO's in combat and noncombat areas. Each film terminated at the point where the leader was faced with making a decision and taking action; a small group discussion followed. A manual for instructors included the purpose of the course, the technique used, the function of the instructor, and narrative descriptions of the leadership problems. The course was used for leadership training, with control groups taking conventional classes. Analyses indicated that the experimental training was superior to the conventional training. (authors/ly)
