Abstract
In modern warfare, Soldiers frequently encounter situations that require sound ethical judgment. Concurrently, there has been an increase in situations where Soldiers have displayed unethical behavior in the face of trying circumstances. Given this, it is imperative that an ethical climate is established to guide Soldiers"judgments and actions. To meet this need, Aptima will develop a training program designed to teach Army leaders to facilitate an ethical climate within their units, identify and react to threats to their unit"s ethical standards, and then provide leaders with the ability to practice and reinforce their climate-setting behaviors using these skills. This project will develop a model of ethical unit climate-setting behaviors, study the appropriate training techniques to maximize knowledge transfer and skills retention, and work toward the development of a training program. When complete, the FLEC-S (Fostering Leaders Ethical Climate-Setting) training program will serve as a self-contained, self-paced training system designed to teach Army leaders to set, maintain, and reinforce an ethical climate in their units and teams.
