U.S. Army Leadership Handbook

Skills, Tactics, and Techniques for Leading in Any Situation

Here is the US Army manual for anyone interested in the Army’s vision of leadership, covering ideas such as transactional leadership and cave thinking with literature. If it’s useful to soldiers in battle, it’s useful to you in business and in life.

What does it take to win a battle? What does it take to lead an army into a battle? Capable leaders with good character are crucial for the Army to meet the challenges in the complex and dangerous security environment that we face today. The U.S. Army Leadership Handbook (FM 6-22) is the Army’s core field manual on leadership. It defines leadership doctrine and basic principles for all officers, Army civilians across all components, and noncommissioned officers. It uses the “BE-KNOW-DO” model. To be successful, Army leaders must be agile, multi-skilled athletes who have keen intellect, a wide range of knowledge, and strong moral character.

Both military and civilian leaders will benefit from this Army field manual. Along with other military manuals and handbooks, it has lessons that are applicable in military and civilian life. All leaders need to set the example, teach, and mentor. This manual provides the principles, concepts, and training to accomplish this crucial task. Brimming with leadership principles crucial to the U.S. military and applicable to all leaders in all walks of life, this up-to-date manual will teach all leaders everything that they need to know.
