Abstract

Leadership is the most important characteristic that a commander brings to an organization. To be an effective leader, a military commander must have a relationship with followers, and the key to that relationship is trust. The problem for commanders is that it is extremely difficult to build trusting relationships because of the limited duration of command, transient nature of military personnel, and deployment of individual military members versus an entire organization.
