MILS 202 - Foundations of Tactical Leadership (3)

The purpose of year two is to work from the same or similar learning objectives - developed as part of years one, three and four - but to provide direct experience. The subject is leadership; so the curriculum necessarily involves understanding how to build teams, how to influence, how to communicate, how and when to make decisions, how to engage in creative problem-solving, and how to plan and organize. The curriculum also focuses on building character. Where years one, three and four focus on mastering definitions, concepts, ideas and principles, year two focuses on direct, physical experiences. Year two centers on giving cadets the opportunity to apply, practice, and experience leadership principles. Cadets are asked to reflect upon their actions and those of others.
