FM 22-100 Army Leadership

FM 22-100 Army Leadership

This Department of the Army Field Manual FM 22-100 establishes the Army's leadership doctrine, the fundamental principles by which Army leaders act to accomplish the mission and take care of their people. The doctrine discusses how Army values form the basis of character.

FM 22-100 offers a framework for how to lead and provides points for Army leaders to consider when assessing and developing themselves, their people, and their organizations. It doesn’t presume to tell Army leaders exactly how they should lead every step of the way. They must be themselves and apply this leadership doctrine as appropriate to the situations they face.

FM 22-100 is a single-source reference for all Army leaders with a threefold purpose:

  • To provide leadership doctrine for meeting mission requirements under all conditions.
  • To establish a unified leadership theory for all Army leaders: military and civilian, active and reserve, officer and enlisted.
  • To provide a comprehensive and adaptable leadership resource for the Army of the 21st century.
