Research Institution

The USAF Academy (USAFA) is seeking a solution to track and evaluate leadership development activities, providing insight into potential gaps in curricula and activities that align with character, leadership, and comprehensive airman fitness (CAF) competencies. TiER1 Performance has developed the Advance platform that will enable USAFA cadets to visualize and track their leadership development journey while at USAFA. Advance will provide USAFA with the tools they need to provide non-academic personal and professional development curriculum that will support the cadets’ development. The academic courses at USAFA will also be able to leverage the features of Advance to integrate with their curriculum. Advance includes the development of a mental fitness curriculum to fully support the integration of CAF competencies into the character and leadership development journey at USAFA. The current COVID-19 crisis has revealed the need for cadets to be more resilient by living out and inspiring others to apply the CAF framework. The mental fitness curriculum in Advance will support cadets while at USAFA and prepare them to effectively lead others during operational conflict and crisis events.  The Advance solution will also include the development of mobile device support features so that cadets may access content and resources at the point of need. This mobile enablement will provide cadets with a full suite of features for leadership development at their fingertips, including reflections, action plans, mentor feedback and input, and the mental fitness curriculum.
