Abstract : The handbook focuses on command, leadership, and the effective staff support of leaders. The staff support areas are intended for: (1) commanders, for ideas and perspectives on how they may want to use their staffs; and (2) junior officers and NOOs serving in staff positions, for ways to increase support to commanders and units. The staff sections include practical examples of ways to increase support that have been successful at the battalion and brigade. The command and leadership areas are primarily drawn from military literature, including the writings of several Army Chiefs of Staff, particularly General John A. Wickham, Jr., and General Edward C. Mayer.
