Currently, Bryan is the Chief of Leader Requirements at the Mission Command Center of Excellence. Army doctrine recently adopted Mission Command as the Army’s philosophy of command. The philosophy of Mission Command encourages senior leaders to clearly communicate their intent to subordinate leaders.

As the Chief of Leader Requirements, Bryan’s duties include identifying and integrating Mission Command training requirements throughout all levels of professional military education for the ranks of sergeant to colonel.
