Senior Leadership Transition Course (SLTC) (100437)

About the Course

As officers and civilian personnel advance in the Coast Guard they must activate their transition from operational leaders focused on tactical competency to leaders who can effectively engage on the strategic and organizational level required as a future senior leader. O4s and GS13s must expand their ability to become intellectual agile and engage in finely tuned diagnostic skills to maneuver in the dynamic conditions of highly 
complex, strategic environments. The primary focuses of SLTC are Leading Performance and Change and Leading the Coast Guard with 
learning outcomes that enhance decision making, strategic and systems thinking, and teaming, shared leadership and change management.  LTC aims to provide graduates developmental experiences to prepare them for service as Coast Guard leaders who:

  • Assess, develop, and articulate reasoned judgments on tactical and strategic issues
  • Develop and interpret the role of strategic and systems thinking throughout their world of work
  • Generate the processes and capabilities to lead the collaboration with teams and external stakeholders to execute innovation and positive change
