A first-look at the challenges of adaptive leadership in a complex world. Students are introduced to complex problems and tasked with developing their own solutions using critical thinking skills.

Areas of interest include an introduction to Army leadership, values, customs and courtesies, basic Army formations, land navigation and tactics all of which form the foundation for a career of service to the nation as a U.S. Army Officer.
