The purpose of this thesis is to examine the perception of the leadership competencies that are being taught at the Navy's leadership course, NAVLEAD, and to investigate ways to reinforce leadership training in the operational environment. An analysis was conducted to identify the importance of the leadership competencies at a naval officer's current job. By determining the importance officers place on the leadership competencies, support can be made to determine if additional training would be beneficial. An investigation was conducted of the various media for leadership training to determine the best method for training in the operational environment. Additionally, an analysis was conducted across designator community and rank, to determine the percentage of time officers spend engaged in management, technical, and leadership tasks. This thesis provides support for implementing post-schoolhouse refresher leadership training through computer-based instruction.
