Success in such operations, including multinational and multi-agency operations, increasingly depends not only on teamwork within the leaders' own hierarchical organization (which most military leaders are very familiar with) but alsoteamwork among the leaders of the multiple organizations in the operation (which most military leaders are not very familiar with). Although success in such operations will depend on the skills, knowledge, and abilities (SKAs) of our leaders, there iscurrently insufficient training focusing on the SKAs relevant to these coalition-related military operations other than war (MOOTW). The primary objectives of Phase I will be to 1) identify the highest-priority SKAs related to successful leadership incoalition MOOTW, 2) identify which SKAs are currently being trained adequately, and 3) recommend any additional needed training based on gaps between what is needed and what is being trained. The results of Phase I will be used in Phase II to guidedevelopment of a training program focused on improving leaders' coalition-relevant SKAs. Benefits of the training program will include leaders who are more prepared than ever to function effectively in multi-na
