Title Negative Leadership.
Publication Date Mar 2013
Media Count 30p
Personal Author D. M. Oberlander
Abstract Senior leaders must have the moral courage to modify the behavior or eliminate negative leadership in the Army. If action is not taken immediately, negative leaders and their toxic leadership style will be taught to their subordinates, the future leaders of the Army. The perpetual cycle of negative leadership has the potential to continually affect the climate of units, culture of the Army, and our profession. This paper is comprised of three sections. The first section takes a look at the available definitions and provides a comparison between the military and civilian definitions. The second section provides the different forms or levels of negative leadership and discusses whether the Army has the correct definition. It reviews how negative leaders affect the Army culture and provides recent examples of negative leadership. The final section takes a look at what the Army is doing to combat negative leadership and proposes actions the senior leaders must take now, before this style of leadership changes the Army culture and our profession.
