The 1996 Army Leadership Symposium: "Leadership Challenges of the 21st Century Army" was held at Cantigny Estate, Wheaton, Illinois from 27-29 March 1996. The symposium brought together senior Army leaders and noted academics to discuss the key leadership and leader development issues facing the Army as it moves into the 21st century. This report summarizes the event and documents the key issues identified during the discussions. These issues primarily concern defining the operational environment of the future, the implications for leadership and leader development as a result of the changing technology and missions, and the implications for leadership and leader development research to ensure a strong theoretical and research base for the Army's leader development plans and programs. Discussions also emphasized the need to maximize human potential and maximize the benefits from leader development resources.
