follow their lead. An Army leader’s intelligence draws from conceptual abilities and is applied to one’s duties and responsibilities. Conceptual abilities enable effective problem-solving and sound judgment. CORE LEADER COMPETENCIES 1-31. Leader competence develops from a balanced combination of institutional schooling, self- development, realistic training, and professional experience. Building competence follows a systematic and gradual approach, from mastering individual competencies to applying them in concert and tailoring them to the situation at hand. Leading people by giving them a complex task helps them develop the confidence and will to take on progressively more difficult challenges.

Chapter 1 1-6 ADRP 6-22 1 August 2012 1-32. Competencies provide a clear and consistent way of conveying expectations for Army leaders. Current and future leaders want to know how to be successful leaders. The core leader competencies apply across all levels of leader positions and throughout careers, providing a good basis for evaluation and focused multisource assessment and feedback. A spectrum of leaders and followers (superiors, subordinates, peers, and mentors) can observe and assess competencies demonstrated through behaviors. 1-33. Leader competencies can be developed. Leaders acquire the basic competencies at the direct leadership level. As the leader moves to organizational and strategic level positions, the competencies provide the basis for leading through change. Leaders continuously refine and extend the ability to perform these competencies proficiently and learn to apply them to increasingly complex situations. 1-34. Performing missions develops, sustains, and improves these competencies. Leaders do not wait until deployments to develop their leader competencies. They use every training opportunity to assess and improve their ability to lead. 1-35. To improve their proficiency, Army leaders can take advantage of chances to learn and gain experience in the leader competencies. They should look for new learning opportunities, ask questions, seek training opportunities, conduct self-assessments, and request performance critiques. This lifelong approach to learning ensures leaders remain viable as professionals.

1 August 2012 ADRP 6-22 2-1 Chapter 2 Roles and Levels of Leadership ROLES AND RELATIONSHIPS 2-1. Army leaders of character lead by personal example and consistently serve as role models through a dedicated lifelong effort to learn and develop. They achieve excellence when disciplined followers do their duty, commit to the Army Values, and feel empowered to accomplish any mission while simultaneously improving their organizations with focus towards the future. 2-2. The Army cannot accomplish its mission unless all Army leaders, Soldiers, and Army Civilians accomplish their mission—whether filing status reports, repairing vehicles, planning budgets, packing parachutes, maintaining pay records, or standing guard duty. The Army relies on dedicated Soldiers and Army Civilians across all components to accomplish missions worldwide.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
