2-39. Strategic leaders are important catalysts for change and transformation. Because they follow a long- term approach to planning, preparing, and executing, they often do not see their ideas come to fruition during their limited tenure. The Army’s transformation to more flexible, more rapidly deployable, and more lethal unit configurations, such as brigade combat teams, is a good example of long-range strategic planning.

The key to the Warrior Ethos is not only physical, tactical, and technical training but a mindset developed through purposeful mental preparation. Building key mental and emotional attributes such as confidence, composure, mental agility, and resilience are central behaviors of the Warrior Ethos. DISCIPLINE 3-24.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
