The article focuses on strengthening of the Army leadership courses in the U.S. In order to prepare future leaders for the conventional battlefield, leadership courses should train on nontraditional leadership roles, provide a compilation of after-action reviews (AARs) and lessons learned from deployments, and establish a more in-depth mentor program. The most notable areas currently neglected by the Army's Junior Officer Development Program relate to civil affairs operations and funds management. In order to better train leaders on adaptability, leadership courses should train on irregular leadership roles, provide a compilation of AARs and lessons learned from deployments, and establish a more in-depth mentor program.
