In its ongoing effort to produce well-rounded leaders, the United States Navy requires both its enlisted and officer members to attend leadership courses at specified career milestones. Officers, for example, attend the Intermediate Officer Leadership Training Course (IOLTC) at the department head pr mid-career point. This course supports the Navy's mission to "be organized, trained, and equipped primarily for prompt and sustained combat incident to operations at sea" by providing the leadership skills necessary to carry out this mission (Dalton, 1994). The course provides leadership training in the areas of values, leadership, communication, subordinate development,managing systems and processes, command development and mission execution. The course mission is to provide advanced education and training in the concepts, philosophies, elements, tools, and practices of effective leadership and management required to function as an intermediate level officer (Chief of Naval Educations and Training, 1997). Considering the manpower and financial resources expended, is this training effective? Do students use the information taught once they return to the work site? Did transfer of learning occur? These questions were explored in an ongoing study to determine what IOLTC curriculum topics had the greatest influence on modifying their leadership behavior. The study group consisted of IOLTC students at the Naval Leader Training Unit Coronado who were surveyed after completion of the course to determine if their leadership behaviors changed as a result of the IOLTC.
