1. PURPOSE. Per reference (a), this Directive elaborates upon procedures and methods and provides guidance for implementing the MCMP.


a. The Commandant of the Marine Corps is directly responsible for establishing and maintaining leadership standards and training in the Marine Corps. The intent and primary goals of the MCMP are to more closely connect leaders and their Marines and to develop the leadership qualities of junior Marines and leaders enabling them to assume progressively greater responsibilities for themselves, each other, and to the Marine Corps.

b. The MCMP provides tools to Marine leaders in order to help them improve their ability to interact on a personal and professional level with their Marines, to help set goals that improve the performance of both the individual Marine and the team, and replicate as closely as possible at home station, the relationships forged between Marines and leaders in combat.

c. This NAVMC is a compendium resource meant to assist leaders at every level to implement the MCMP. Questions concerning this program should be directed to the Commanding General, Training and Education Command (C461), 3300 Russell Road, Quantico, VA 22134.

DISTRIBUTION STATEMENT A: Approved for public release; distribution is unlimited.
