MSL 4010 Adaptive Leadership

The MSL 4010 course transitions the focus on student learning from being trained, mentored and evaluated as an MSL III Cadet, to learning how to train, mentor and evaluate underclass Cadets. MSL IV Cadets will learn the duties and responsibilities of an Army staff officer and apply the Military Decision Making Process (MDMP), the Army writing style and the Army's training management and METL development processes during weekly training meetings to plan, execute and assess battalion training events. Cadets will learn how to safely conduct this training by understanding and employing the risk management process. MSL IV Cadets will learn how to use the Comprehensive Soldier Fitness (CSF) program to reduce and manage stress. Cadets will learn about the special trust proposed by the US Constitution to Army Officers - a trust above and beyond other professions. Cadets will learn Army values and ethics and how to apply them to everyday life as well as in operating environments. The MSL IV Cadet will learn about the officer's role in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, with counseling subordinates, administrative discipline and separations, and methods for officer career management.
