Leadership and Management Education and Training (LMET) Course Requirements for Recruit Company Commanders and "A" School Instructors. Technical Report 154.
Hughes, Herschel, Jr.; And Others
This study determined the leadership competencies exhibited by superior Navy recruit company commanders (RCCs) and "A" school instructors. Interviews and surveys were used to collect data from current RCCs and instructors at the Naval Training Center in Orlando, Florida. Seventeen leadership competencies performed by "A" school instructors were identified. Of these 17, there were 16 that are also performed by RCCs. The competencies that differentiate between superior and nonsuperior performers were determined. Data about background factors related to career leadership experiences were collected. Leadership competencies that differentiate men from women RCCs were identified. In order to determine actual leadership training requirements, data concerning competency difficulty, importance, and frequency of performance were combined with data about competencies that differentiated superior and nonsuperior performers. All four of these factors were used to develop separate training requirements for men RCCs, women RCCs, and "A" school instructors. Critical leadership training requirements for all three groups were combined and nine competencies were recommended for training emphasis. Leadership attitudes, methods of RCC/instructor self-appraisal, areas of counseling difficulty, and intrastaff communication patterns were analyzed and data presented for consideration in course design.
