Midgrade Officer and Civilian Transition Course 1 (MOCTC 1) (100139)

About the Course

MOCTC-1 is designed to prepare Coast Guard Lieutenants (O-3s) and civilians (GS-12s), preferably in a supervisory/team leadership role, as they transition to roles of greater responsibility and broader impact, evolving their leadership abilities and approach to handle more complex leadership challenges. While expanding their ability to lead others at their unit, the course prepares O-3s and GS-12s to apply knowledge to large-scale current organizational challenges and daily individual leadership challenges. Topics in the course include leadership practices, communication (interpersonal, written, and oral), self-awareness, team-dynamics, collaboration, conflict management, critical thinking, emotional intelligence and ethical decision-making. Each student will complete a 360-degree feedback survey and commit to improve in at least three areas.
