Company Commanders’
Leader Professional Development
(CCLPD)

Fellow Leader Developer: We are honored to support your leader-development program. Each CCLPD has been designed to foster 15-45 minutes of quality professional conversation. The video clips and articles provide you and your team with meaningful topics to talk about. The suggested questions are ones that we find interesting, but you should guide your conversations to address the issues most important to your team. Dedicating time to develop your subordinate leaders makes a powerful, positive impact that will ripple across every level in your unit. We commend you and are here to support you!

To gain access to CCLPDs, click on the “Open request form” below the specific CCLPD you seek. You’ll be asked to provide contact information. (note: CCLPDs are produced BY and FOR Army leaders; please do not share with others or on social media.) Once you submit the request, you will be sent an email that provides the link to that specific CCLPD’s materials.

Please don’t hesitate to send us your questions, comments, or suggestions. Our email is cc.team@usma.edu
