The pillars of Army leadership

by on
in Best-Practices Leadership,Leaders & Managers,People Management

In 1973, the U.S. Army training manual outlined a leadership philosophy called “Be, Know and Do.” Over the years, a number of leaders have credited that philosophy for their success.

Here’s how you can apply it:
  • Be, by embodying loyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage.

  • Know, by mastering what you need to know in your field, such as technical knowledge, world trends and relevant skills.

  • Do, by engaging in three activities:

    1. Influencing (making decisions and motivating people).

    2. Operating (reaching immediate objectives).

    3. Improving (helping your organization do better).
— Adapted from Be, Know, Do, the Official Army Leadership Manual: Leadership the Army Way, Eric, K. Shinseki and Richard Cavanagh, Jossey-Bass.
