This course will discuss group leadership principles and lessons gleaned from 30 years of Army service and multiple deployments, including Afghanistan.  The nuances required to effectively accomplish missions and achieve objectives, the frustrations of coalition leadership, some discussions on negotiation, the importance of perspective and perception, and decision making in a time-constrained environment and amidst ambiguity will be discussed and compared to leadership in the corporate/business sector.  The suggested readings provide a backdrop to the military discussion.
