Welcome to your professional forum! Company Command is company commanders. We are a grass-roots, voluntary forum that is by and for the profession with a specific, laser-beam focus on company-level command. By joining, you are gaining access to an amazing community of professionals who love Soldiers and are committed to building combat-ready teams.
By engaging in professional forums like the CC forum, leaders
gain access to knowledge-however, more powerfully for the profession,
they gain a platform to share their ideas, lessons learned,
and wisdom born of experience. They are enabled to be professionals
on a scale never before possible.
The single best description of the value of the CC forum is this Army Magazine article, which features company commanders describing how their forum has made a positive difference for them.

A Leader Challenge is an interactive, video-based vignette that features a dilemma-type scenario that a leader has experienced.
The Leader Challenge method for developing leaders builds on the idea that actual leadership experience is what develops leaders the most, and challenging experiences are the best leader development curriculum. We ask leaders to tell us stories on videotape about their most challenging experiences—hard hitting, dilemma-type situations. We then bring those video clips into the online community (or face-to-face settings) and ask participants to put themselves in the leader's shoes and to succinctly respond: "What are your considerations…What would you do?"
There are three steps to a Leader Challenge

For over 13 years, company commanders have been connecting with each other through the CC forum--in a grass-roots, front-porch conversation focused on becoming better leaders and growing more effective units. Today, a growing network of more than 10,000 company commanders are engaging in their professional forum.
We have changed technology platforms several times over the years, and we just finished moving to a new platform. We are, as expected, working through some adjustments, the biggest of which is the CAC requirement; however, we will figure things out. In the end, it's going to be a much more powerful platform that will give us some amazing new capabilities.
If you have any issues getting on to the forum, please contact our tech guru, Tom Morel, who will help you.
We are rocking on a new CC Facebook page, which we are using to keep members in the know about the hot conversations and content in the forum. Follow your forum there.
Last, but not least, we publish an article in ARMY Magazine each month (the Company Command Column) featuring some of the most valuable conversations in the forum. You can access all those articles here: http://cc.army.mil/pubs/armymagazine. The latest one on building a cohesive team is pretty awesome and a great way to start a conversation about the topic with your own team. Just have your leaders read it, and then get together over lunch to talk about what you, collectively, are doing to create a great team.
