Effective March 31, 2022 Airman Leadership Qualities will be integrated into feedback

On Feb. 2, 2021, the Air Force announced 10 Airman Leadership Qualities (ALQs) focused on key performance characteristics Airmen need to succeed in future conflicts. The 10 ALQs, emphasizing both character and competence, were released as an addendum to the Airman Comprehensive Assessment and were optional for feedback to all senior non-commissioned officers and officers in all grades. The release allowed parts of the force to become familiar with the 10 ALQs and begin transitioning toward evaluating and incentivizing Airmen on what we value in their performance. Effective March 31, 2022, the ALQs will be integrated into feedback for all Airmen, enlisted and officer, across all ranks. The ALQs will also form the basis for the new officer and enlisted evaluation systems projected for release later in 2022.

VIDEO | 01:42 | Earlier this year, the Air Force announced 10 Airman leadership qualities, which are now being integrated into a new feedback tool to facilitate discussion between rater and ratee. The qualities, found in the Airman Comprehensive Assessment Addendum – AF Form 724-A, focus on character and competence and are categorized under four major performance areas. The Airman leadership qualities are expected to form the basis for the future officer and enlisted performance reporting systems. (U.S. Air Force video by Jamal D. Sutter)
