Abstract:

This study examines the relationship between command or managerial success and various attributes of motivation. The specific intent of the study is to conduct an exploratory assessment of the motivation to manage among mid-grade Army officers. The short-range and operational objective of the study is to determine if command success can be explained, in part, in terms of managerial motivation. The findings reveal that there are unmistakable managerial motivational attributes present in the CGSC sample of officers. A sub-group of the total sample of officers who by self-report indicate that they are more command oriented than the remainder of the sample are quite similar to a large sample of successful civilian managers. The remainder of the CGSC sample of officers are more nearly like the general population. Author
