USMA Capstone Course
MX400-Officership
Integrating Principles of MX400 – Expectations of Daily Reinforcement
Mission Command
Mission Command (ADP/ADRP 6.0)
• Based On:
o Mutual trust
o Shared understanding
o Purpose
• Six Principles:
o Build cohesive teams through mutual trust
o Create shared understanding
o Provide clear Commander's intent
o Exercise disciplined initiative
o Use mission orders
o Accept prudent risk
Embracing the Human Dimension
• More than “See Yourself, Enemy, Terrain”
o Continual, honest self-assessments
o Cultural competence
o Spheres of Influence (internal/external)
• Expanding leader competency sets
o Cognitive, Emotional, Social
o Emotional Intelligence
o Interpersonal relationship building
• “Military operations are complex, human endeavors
characterized by the continuous, mutual give and take,
move, countermove among participants” (ADP 6.0, p1)
Building Strength of Character
• Army’s Profession Doctrine (ADP/ADRP 1)
• Army Values and Army Ethic at the core of who we are
as Army Professionals
• Represent “honorable living and building trust” as
foundational pillars to inspire and lead
• Stewardship
o Developing subordinates
• Lifelong journey (Military career and beyond)
• We define and build our character every day
Developing Professional Habits
• Lifelong patterns of behavior; “continue to grow” (former
West Point SUPT)
• Thirst for personal & professional information
o Daily “scanning” regimen (The Early Bird, Stand To,
DVIDs, World News)
o Keywords in media mediums
o Feed the classroom discussion
• Smart book for capturing reflections, ideas, questions –
“making time”
• Service (Professional and Community)
• Mind, Body, Spirit
• Professional organizations
