The purpose of this quantitative study was to measure the leadership skills of Air Command and Staff College and Intelligence Master Skills Course students, identify statistically significant differences, and determine areas to improve junior intelligence officers. A modified Managerial Practices Survey was administered to 285 students and the results revealed limited statistically significant differences in the inventory of leadership skills. The data supported the null hypothesis that Intelligence Master Skills Course students, as compared to Air Command and Staff College students, do not display significantly lower scores on some of the 14 leadership skills measured by the modified Managerial Practices Survey. Only the three skills of consulting, leading by example, and encouraging innovative thinking were significantly different and intelligence officers scored higher in all three of those areas. The results of the stepwise regression analysis suggested that leadership skills accounted for a small percentage of the variance between officers selected for in-residence Intermediate Developmental Education opportunities such as the Air Command and Staff College and the officers that were not selected for in-residence Intermediate Developmental Education. Therefore, no leadership skills emerged as areas requiring additional attention in mentoring programs to make junior intelligence officers more competitive for in-residence Intermediate Developmental Education opportunities.
