CLES Summer Leadership

We stopped by the Cadet Lodge on Friday while CLES for the class of 2017 Summer Leadership was in process.

The Cadet Commanders’ Leadership Enrichment Seminar (CLES) is a leadership development workshop hosted by the Air Force Academy's Department of Behavioral Sciences and Leadership (DFBL) in partnership with the Center for Character and Leadership Development (CCLD). 

During the seminar, a multiple mission partner team of leadership coaches, mentors, and experts from throughout USAFA prepare 150 cadet commanders and intercollegiate team captains per year to lead change in the Cadet Wing by achieving their unit goals.  Cadets arrive to CLES with a desired goal, and then work with their cadet peers and a team of experts to evolve their goal into a specific action plan after considering issues of planning, communication, motivation, and feedback.  DFBL has hosted CLES each Fall, Spring and Summer semester since 1983 with the generous support of the United States Air Force Academy (USAFA) Association of Graduates (AOG).

When we stopped by they were split up into the Summer Group Programs (Wing Staff, BCT, ESET and OPs) and in the middle of discussions.
