This course provides practical exercise in planning, executing, and assessing complex operations, functioning as a member of a staff, and providing leadership-performance feedback to subordinates. Cadets are given situational opportunities to assess risk, make sound ethical decisions, and provide coaching and mentoring to fellow ROTC Cadets. MSL IV Cadets are measured by their ability to give and receive systematic and specific feedback on leadership abilities using the Socratic model of reflective learning. Cadets at the MSL IV level analyze and evaluate the leadership values, attributes, skills, and actions of MSL III Cadets while simultaneously considering their own leadership skills. Attention is given to preparation for success at BOLC II and III, and the development of leadership abilities.
