Coast Guard Leadership Competencies

Leadership competencies are the knowledge, skills, and expertise the Coast Guard expects of its leaders. While there is some overlap in these competencies, they generally fall within four broad categories:

Leading the Coast Guard Leading Self
Leading Change Leading Others

The 28 leadership competencies are keys to career success. Developing them in all Coast Guard people will result in the continuous improvement necessary for us to remain always ready -- Semper Paratus.
