ADRP 6-22

5-2. The conceptual components affecting an Army leader’s intellect include—

  • Mental agility.
  • Sound judgment.
  • Innovation.
  • Interpersonal tact.
  • Expertise.


INNOVATION (Use your time as a Recruiter to develop Innovation)

5-9. Innovation describes the ability to introduce something new when needed or as opportunities exist.  Innovative leaders tend to be inquisitive and good problem solvers. Being innovative includes creativity in producing original and worthwhile ideas. Leaders should seize such opportunities to think creatively and to innovate. A key concept for creative thinking is developing new ideas and approaches to accomplish missions. Creative thinking uses adaptive approaches (drawing from previous circumstances) or innovative approaches (developing completely new ideas).

5-10. Leaders think creatively to adapt to new environments. Innovative leaders prevent complacency by finding new ways to challenge subordinates with forward-looking approaches and ideas. To be innovators, leaders rely on intuition, experience, knowledge, and input from subordinates. Innovative leaders reinforce team building by making everybody responsible for, and stakeholders in, the innovation process.
