This two-volume report collection has been professionally converted for accurate flowing-text e-book format reproduction. The works are a collection of observations, insights, and advice from over 50 serving and retired Senior Non-Commissioned Officers. These experienced Army leaders have provided for the reader, outstanding mentorship on leadership skills, tasks, and responsibilities relevant to our Army today. There is much wisdom and advice "from one leader to another" in these pages. Volume One covers skills, tasks, and responsibilities, while Volume Two covers attributes and competencies. Every enlisted leader is encouraged to take the lessons learned here and put them into their kit bag.
The NCO Creed says no one is more professional than a Non Commissioned officer. As the Army moves toward 2020, that means NCOs will have to remain broadly skilled and be prepared to take on more responsibility. The Army is going to ask us to be that critical and creative thinker, that adaptive and agile leader. Most importantly we will need to be grounded in the traditional role of the NCO, and that's about accomplishing missions and taking care of Soldiers.
