Leadership for the 1970's: Consolidated Army War College Leadership Monograph Series 1-5.
Army War Coll., Carlisle Barracks, PA.
The collection of five monographs focuses on the idea of reciprocity as expressed through an informal "contract" between the individual and the organization, and examines specifically that portion of the contract that involves the individual leader, his superior, and his subordinates. The basic idea is that the individual leader at any level expects certain behavior from his superior, his subordinates, and himself. Also, both his superior and his subordinates expect certain behavior from him. It appears that only when these expectations are known and met can true leadership take place. These monographs attempt to define the appropriate terms of the informal contract and the extent to which they are recognized and fulfilled throughout the Army. Attention is focused on four basic leadership modules: Junior NCO leadership; Senior NCO leadership; Company Grade Officer leadership; and Field Grade Officer leadership. Data on the modules are structured so as to reflect racial characteristics and attitudes in the first two monographs: "Demographic Characteristics of U. S. Army Leaders" and "Satisfaction with U. S. Army Leadership." The remaining monographs examine the informal contract in terms of specific behaviors for Junior NCO leadership, Senior NCO leadership, and Company Grade Officer leadership. An appendix lists 43 leadership behaviors. (Author/PR)
