Not Available "Twilight Training and the Foundation for Responsible Citizenship propose to develop a leader self-development support program for the Army that includes both a classroom component and a web-based component. The classroom component will serve to introduceparticipants to numerous concepts and theories related to self-insight and self-development, as well as conduct several self-assessments to gage the current self-development awareness and skills of each individual participant.

The leader self-developmentsupport program proposed on this effort addresses these issues and will push each participant to gain a fuller and more honest understanding of his or her identity, preferences, strengths, and areas for improvement. The end result will be a set of leaderswho have integrity, forthrightness, and
