What is Athena?

Athena is the Army’s premier effort to provide leaders feedback about the skills, capabilities, and tendencies they possess. Feedback on one’s tendencies and abilities promotes self-awareness, which if utilized allows individuals to make immediate adjustments to how they lead, communicate, think, and interact with others. Leaders who are self-aware and put forth effort to improve will be more effective and better prepared.

During your participation in Athena, you completed a series of assessments to provide you with insight into three key areas: leadership, cognitive, and personal. Being aware of your strengths and limitations in each of these areas will allow you to guide your own self-development and improve your readiness as a leader.
