Leadership development is a mainstay throughout the the Army Cadet training program. A focus on guiding cadets to discover their ‘inner leader’ is a key component to all of our unit’s activities. Cadets discuss and gain an understanding of leadership, as they progress through the Star Level program. When participating in activates away from the classroom, they are provided opportunities to begin to understand the responsibilities of leadership, as they take on opportunities to lead others.
It is our goal to create an atmosphere where cadets from our unit will reflect on: What are effective leadership qualities ? How do you build morale and esprit de corps ? What are the principles of leadership and the qualities of a good leader ? What is the difference between leadership – management – command ? How to build teams and create effective team work ? How do you acquire an understanding of leadership styles, mentoring, team leadership, problem solving, communication, and leadership approaches ? Grasping an understanding of these skills will prepare cadets for a lifetime as leaders.
