SCOPE
Strategic thinkers and leaders must possess the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly and concisely, both verbally and in writing. DS350 is grounded in the application of sound communication techniques relevant to the tactical, operational, and strategic levels of war. The course introduces communication and persuasion theories and techniques applicable for the proper delivery of messages in a professional organization, beginning by building cadets' public speaking and presentation abilities. Cadets then gain foundational knowledge in the dynamics of negotiations, applying their persuasion skills in various simulation exercises. The course then turns to the study of the interactions between the military and the media to understand their influence on the contemporary battlefield. The course culminates with the development of communication synchronization plans aimed at addressing key strategic issues.
