JLBC: Leadership

JLBC: Leadership

b. regionally conducted JLBC RDA / NDA activities and

c. technical JLBC TE conducted activities.

18. Under the JLBC supervision of the JLBC Case O, or designated representative, the JLBC cadet completing JLBC OJT will be responsible for performing a variety of leadership appointments, assignments, projects, and instructional responsibilities. Cadets may also be assigned general administrative, support, and supervision roles and responsibilities. At the same time, the unique nature of each cadet corps will dictate the exact OJT experience a cadet will have. At a minimum, the cadet shall be provided with suitable learning and assessment of learning opportunities as outlined in the Assessment of Learning Plan, Chapter 3, Annex B.

19. The nature of the tasks assigned during OJT should be consistent with the cadet's abilities and areas of interest. The cadre of senior cadets at a cadet corps should not be viewed as a hierarchy but as a team of competent young people where each cadet is assigned tasks suited to their particular skills. Involving the cadets in the studies setting and clearly and fairly distributing OJT tasks based on the cadet's time commitment and skills will help build a strong leadership team at the cadet corps.

20. Cadets participating in OJT are training to develop leadership and instructional skills. It is unrealistic to expect perfect JLBC performance from cadets under training. Mistakes will occur, and each should be viewed as a teachable moment to help the JLBC cadet learn from the experience and improve in the future. JLBC Case O has a responsibility to ensure that realistic expectations of performance are communicated and that the JLBC cadet feels they are in a safe environment where making a mistake is an accepted part of the learning process.


21. JLBC Scheduling. When planning JLBC training, Trg Os is to be familiar with the JLBC lesson specifications found in

JLBC. Some things to consider when developing the annual JLBC training schedule are:

a. the combination of scheduling individual JLBC OJT and complementary training self-study and collective JLBC mandatory training;

b. the requirement to complete JLBC (Develop a Personalized Schedule) in the first few sessions of the training year to ensure JLBC cadets understand the needs of JLBC Phase Five;

c. the requirement to complete mandatory periods in JLBC (Lead Cadet Activities) early in the training year to ensure JLBC cadets are prepared for the needs of project management;

d. the benefits of completing JLBC (Reflect Upon the JLBC Cadet Experience), if selected, near the conclusion of Phase Five;

e., the requirement for the JLBC cadet to complete three complimentary JLBC training self-study packages, with the option to achieve more if the cadet desires, to include a minimum of one elemental JLBC EO;

f. the option of grouping JLBC cadets together to guide the JLBC cadets through a complementary training JLBC self-study package, replacing short answer questions with JLBC group discussion;

g. the requirement to structure JLBC OJT time such that the JLBC cadet has adequate time to plan and prepare for JLBC (Lead JLBC Cadet Activities) and to complete the requirements of JLBC, Annex B (Assessment of Learning Plan – JLBC Phase Five);

h. the logical JLBC grouping and sequencing of JLBC EOs to take advantage of interrelationships that exist within the JLBC instructional material; and

i. the availability of a JLBC technical specialist, if required to conduct the activity.
