Abstract:     
This case is based on actual events from one of the author’s experiences as a U.S. Air Force Lieutenant, deployed to Kuwait in support of Operation ENDURING FREEDOM (Afghanistan Theater) and IRAQI FREEDOM (Iraq Theater).

This case is about an ontological approach to leadership development. Ontology, as a general subject, is concerned with the being of anything. This case is ontological because of its focus in on the being of human beings. While an epistemological analysis is about knowing, an ontological analysis is about being. This case centers on being a leader and gives students an opportunity to explore the question, “What is the nature and function of being when being a leader?”

A teaching note is provided starting on page 18.
