    WEST POINT, N.Y. - Enlisted members from Keller Army Community Hospital’s Operation Room participated in the Leaders’ Reaction Course (LRC), Saturday, June 13, 2015, after receiving Character Strength Training from a Master Resilience Trainer.

    The Character Strength Training included a survey that measured individual strengths, and tips on how to identify those strengths in themselves and others. The LRC provided intense, hands-on experience that emphasized learning through team-based problem-solving, decision-making, and effective communication skills. Using what they learned during the character strength training, the Soldiers were able to utilize individual team member's strengths to successfully navigate obstacles.

    This type of training develops individual leaders and unit cohesion, while measuring the organizational effectiveness of a small unit. The LRC is designed so that each individual will be a leader, for at least one task, and serve as a team member in other tasks. At all times, all individuals will focus on the effective and ineffective behaviors of the team. This is done so the LRC achieves its primary purposes of:

    1. Improving the Soldier’s leadership ability by affording the Soldier an opportunity to apply the lessons leaders in their formal leadership instruction.

    2. Assessing the Soldier by measuring the degree to which certain leadership traits and behaviors are possessed by the Soldiers.

    3. Providing the Soldier with a means of making a self-evaluation to determine more accurately their leadership ability.

    4. Providing Soldiers the opportunity to observe the effects of strengths and weaknesses of others during a team operation.

    5. Developing individuals as leaders.

    Both the Character Strength Training and the Leaders’ Reaction Course were taught by Keller’s Master Resiliency Training team, which is part of Comprehensive Soldier Fitness program. Master Resiliency Training is designed to enhance a Soldier's mettle, mind and mental thinking, and focuses on the five dimensions of strength: emotional, social, spiritual, family and physical.
