Primary Leadership Development Program (PLDP), which replaces the PO1 [petty officer 1st class] LTC. Those are Sailors, E-5 or E-6, to be assigned leadership roles and responsibilities for the planning and execution of divisional functions, to include the professional and personal growth of personnel within that division (e.g., positions such as leading petty officer, squad leader, assistant platoon commander, etc). Again, previous completion of the PO1 LTC satisfies leadership development requirements for PLDP position assignments.

The Advanced Leadership Development Program (ALDP) replaces the CPO LTC. Attendees are defined as: those Sailors, E-6 or E-7, to be assigned leadership roles and responsibilities in the administration, supervision and training of divisional or departmental personnel, to include the professional and personal growth of personnel within that division and/or department (e.g., positions such as department leading chief petty officer, operations chief, flight deck supervisor, platoon commander, etc). Previous completion of the CPO LTC satisfies leadership development requirements for ALDP position assignments.

This course presents a comprehensive, integrative, and practical focus on leadership and management. It is based upon a framework that analyzes leadership and management at different levels: individual leadership, team leadership, and organizational leadership.

The course presents leadership and management theories/concepts that have emerged over the past several decades. It provides students the opportunity to apply these theories through case analysis and to enhance personal skill development through self-assessment exercises. Included in the course are identification of current leaders and leadership as well as contemporary perspectives on ethics, networking, coaching, organizational culture, diversity, learning organizations, strategic leadership, and crisis leadership.
