Abstract : There are several aspects of the Army culture which work against the development of strategic leaders. This paper explores the strategic leadership environment of the future and how Army culture needs to change to develop strategic leaders to meet the demands of that environment. It argues that service culture has a powerful influence on how leaders develop and are selected. Cultural influences need to be better understood and particular attention given to changing the culture in desired ways. Changes in rewards systems and career paths that will have the effect of changing the culture and developing future strategic leaders with desired competencies are recommended.
