Army's Project Athena, in place at Fort Benning, helping forge strong maneuver leaders

Franklin Fisher

A new method the Army has adopted to help forge strong leadership by motivating officers and noncommissioned officers to embrace professional self-development, is underway at Fort Benning. The method, known as Project Athena, is being put into operation Army-wide, and uses a battery of online self-assessments and other means to give leaders feedback that will help them develop.
