This study explores the impact that crucible experiences have on leadership and leader development. This impact is specifically applied against the effects, both positive and negative, of implementing a crucible experience within Intermediate-Level Education across all military services within the Department of Defense and how this would affect the experience and leadership development for junior field grade officers. The current adult education model and curriculum meets the intent of developing leaders, but previous research has shown that crucible experiences can create extraordinary leaders. Evidence within this thesis implies that crucible experiences enable leaders to emerge stronger, more engaged, and more committed than ever. The intent of this study is to assist each of the services' Intermediate-Level Education curriculum development experts with future revisions to their programs and to form more effective learning experiences for junior field grade officers.
