Facing high-risk and turbulent external environments, leaders at all levels make decisions paramount to long-term organizational success, particularly in the US Army. Amid resource constraints the Center for Army Leadership strives to improve leader development through acceleration of competency acquisition. Stories, as exemplars, present a powerful an motivational tool for leaders at all levels to better understand what the Army expects from them. Recently, an evaluation of 25 of these exemplars was completed with 67 combat arms soldiers to determine the perceived effectiveness of, relevancy of, and level of interest in, each exemplar. Overall, the participants found 21 (84%) of 25 of the proposed exemplars to be at least effective for leader development.
