Leadership

 

“Thorough preparation must lead to success. Neglect nothing.”

General Sir Arthur William Currie, GCMG, KCB

 

Leadership development is a pillar of 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 field training, cadets  are provided opportunities to lead others, thereby implementing the leadership skills learned in the classroom.

It is our goal to create an atmosphere where cadets from our unit will reflect on

  • principles of leadership
  • effective leadership qualities
  • leadership styles
  • building morale and esprit de corps
  • the difference between leadership,  management, and command
  • effective teamwork and team leadership
  • mentoring, problem solving, and communication.

Developing an understanding of these skills will prepare cadets to be lifelong leaders.
