This study examines the strategic-leader competencies of George Washington. The competencies discussed include the major categories of conceptual (with its attributes of frame of reference development, problem management, and envisioning the future), technical (systems understanding, joint and combined relationships, and political and social competence) and interpersonal (consensus building, negotiation, communication) as defined in the U.S. Army War College's Strategic Leadership Primer. The scope is limited to General Washington's service during the Revolutionary War. It includes brief biographic information, an explanation of each competency and its attributes and historical examples from General George Washington's life. The author concludes that George Washington exemplified the strategic leader competencies and deserves the title of great strategist.
