AWG adaptability program embraced by Division

Soldiers from the 25th Infantry Division team up into small groups and are charged with completing an obstacle with limited resources during phase one of the U.S. Army's Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program at Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. Members of the AWG brought the program to the 25th Infantry Division to assist in developing an adaptive leader program for incorporation into their Lightning Academy. During AWALP, soldiers are confronted with various obstacles and are required to mitigate them through individual and group thought using intangible attributes while achieving the commander’s intent. The ambiguity and difficulty of these event increases during AWALP as Soldiers learn to navigate through scenarios which relate to various operational environments soldiers face today. The 10-day AWALP resident program is held quarterly at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. (Photo by Lt. Col. Sonise Lumbaca)

During the first phase, the Individual Adaptability Phase, soldiers are confronted with various obstacles along the way and with how well they can mitigate them alongside others they normally do not work with. The ambiguity and difficulty of this event increases as soldiers learn to navigate through the scenarios. The 10-day AWALP is held quarterly at Fort A.P Hill, Va. (U.S. Army photo by Master Sgt.

  • Soldiers from the 197th Infantry Brigade participate in an adaptability practical exercise using and obstacle course during the U.S. Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program hosted at Fort Benning, Ga. Since obstacle courses are resident to most Army installations, members of the AWG used this training facility as an example for Fort Benning "school house" instructors, who participated in AWALP, to demonstrate how adaptability can be incorporated into training, while simultaneously invoking intangible attributes such as critical thinking, and building Soldiers' confidence.

  • Soldiers from the 197th Infantry Brigade participate in an adaptability practical exercise using an obstacle course during the U.S. Asymmetric Warfare Group's Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program, hosted at Fort Benning, Ga. Members of the AWG incorporated the obstacle course into the adaptive training scenario in order to demonstrate that a training facility, such as an obstacle course that is resident to most military installations, can be used to accomplish multiple training objectives such as improving problem solving and critical thinking skills. AWALP is a 10-day resident program currently held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va. A condensed version was also created in order to assist units with developing their own programs at their home-station.

  • Blaise Cornell-d'Echert (standing), an Asymmetric Warfare Group Asymmetric Warfare Adaptive Leader Program cadre member and retired infantry colonel, guide soldiers from the 197th Infantry Brigade through problem solving during an adaptability practical exercise while at Fort Benning, Ga. Normally a 10-day program held at Fort A.P. Hill, Va., the AWG condensed AWALP into a four day program and sent out a mobile team to the brigade in order to bring adaptability to Army "school house" instructors and training planners. The program, which focuses on building an adaptive force, is an example of the Army's larger initiative of instituting the 21st Century Soldier Competencies. (U.S. Army photo by Lt. Col.
