This article provides some steps on how to discuss leader development of junior officers in your organization and offers techniques for establishing a leader development program that meets the needs of your organization. It is paramount to solicit feedback from junior leaders in your organization, to vary the programming you provide, and to provide direction and structure for a successful program. This is a synthesis of what we experienced and how we approached the establishment of a leader development program in the 1st Battalion, 16th Infantry "Iron Rangers" of the 1st Infantry Division from 2016-2018. It is clear from our experience that every organization needs a deliberate leader development program. Development has to be a deliberate event that incorporates feedback from those individuals in the program.
