Abstract : A leadership course for Army officers utilized sound films for the presentation of officer problems, based on descriptions of leadership situations collected from Army officers and NCOs in combat and non-combat areas. Each film terminated at the point where the leader was faced with making a decision and taking action; a small group discussion followed. A manual for instructors included the purpose of the course, the technique used, the function of the instructor, and narrative descriptions of the leadership problems. The course was used for leadership training, with control groups taking conventional classes. Analyses indicated that the experimental training was superior to the conventional training. (Author)
