GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  The Senior Leader Development Training (SLDT) provides leaders with an orientation on the intrapersonal, interpersonal, and organizational aspects of human relations in order to gain an understanding of their impact on unit cohesion and mission effectiveness.  The SLDT is for the strategic decision makers and is designed for officers (Commanders and key staff/department heads O-4 to O-6), senior enlisted members (E-7 to E-9), and civilians (GS-12 to GS-15), including legal officers, chaplains, and Inspector General Personnel in leadership positions.
2.  The SLDT is conducted in a joint service environment and follows a building block approach, using instructional segments on intrapersonal awareness, interpersonal communications, and organizational behavior.  The intent of SLDT is to raise awareness of personnel dynamics and incorporate personal and professional experiences in solving organizational issues in values and prejudices.  The SLDT is divided into the following topics:  socialization and values, communicating across differences, conflict management, sexual harassment awareness, system vs victim focus, religious diversity, power, prejudice and discrimination, racism, sexism, extremism, institutional discrimination, capitalizing on diversity, sexual assault prevention and response awareness, and assessment considerations.  The duration of SLDT is 5 days consisting of at least 40 hours of instruction.
