Abstract : The ARI-CTC Archive contains records of exercises conducted at the U.S. Army Combat Training Centers (CTCs). The information contained in the archive was used to examine critical leader behaviors in the art of battle command. Some factors that were found to influence the commander's ability to see the battlefield are setting and enforcing standards of subordinate reporting and staff planning, and the commander's ability to use and trust subordinates. The commander's ability to focus the staff and subordinate effort is also discussed as a critical leader behavior. Trends in the use and quality of commander's intent and mission statements are reported. Additionally, six missions were described in detail as case studies which illustrate critical leader behaviors.
