Part-Time Company Commander: How to Lead a Company in the National Guard or Army Reserve, Course Review

Part-Time Commander: How to lead a company in the National Guard or Army Reserve

Recently I had the opportunity to review a course for Company Commanders in the Army National Guard or Army Reserves. The course is entitled Part-Time Commander:  How to Lead a Company in the National Guard or Army Reservesby Charles “Chuck” Holmes.

Chuck and I have a professional relationship and occasionally communicate with each other.  We are both passionate about helping Leaders and Soldiers better themselves within their chosen profession. What follows is my opinion of the course content and structure.
The Part-Time Commander Course contains three CDs.  One CD features the PDF version of the book and the two other CDs contain audio files with several hours of content.

The book is divided into five parts and contains 27 chapters. It covers specifics areas of interest while providing valuable experience into the specifics of commanding within the Guard or Reserve.  The table of contents includes:

Part One: Before You Take Command

Chapter 1: What it Takes to Be an Effective Company Commander

Chapter 2: Managing Your Career Before Company Command

Chapter 3: Applying & Interviewing For Command

Chapter 4: Conducting Your Inventory

Chapter 5: Left-Seat-Right-Seat Ride

Chapter 6: Change-of-Command Ceremony

Part Two: Your First Year in Command

Chapter 7: Your First IDT Weekend
