Course Description for Foundations of Tactical Leadership
Foundations of Tactical Leadership
Co-requisite: MSL 2102L
This course examines the challenges of leading tactical teams in the complex COE. 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. This course provides a smooth transition into MSL 3201. Cadets develop greater self-awareness as they assess their own leadership styles and practice communication and team-building skills. COE case studies give insight into the importance and practice of teamwork and tactics in real-world scenarios. Students must register for and attend a two-hour, weekly leadership laboratory. Students not on scholarship who enroll in this basic course do not incur any service obligation to the US Army.
