Building and Maintaining Healthy Organizations: The Key to Future Success
ARMY WAR COLL CARLISLE BARRACKS PA
Pagination or Media Count:
The First Annual Anton Myrer Leadership Symposium, sponsored by the Department of Command, Leadership, and Management of the U.S. Army War College, was held at Carlisle Barracks, Pennsylvania, during the period January 26-28, 1999. The theme of the inaugural symposium was Building and Maintaining Healthy Organizations The Key to Future Success. In recognition that there are certain commonalities among all organizational, institutional, and bureaucratic entities, whether civilian or military, the symposium construed the term organization in the broadest way. Symposium discussions addressed four major thematic areas establishing values-based organizations, creating a change-receptive organizational culture, attracting and retaining future leaders, and selecting and developing the best leaders. The present book is an outgrowth of the symposium, not as a record of presentations and discussion in the sense of traditional symposium proceedings, but rather as an anthology of essays devoted to the four thematic areas. Except for the introductory and concluding chapters, the essays were authored by especially selected officers of the U.S. Army War College Class of 1999. Each of these officers participated in a symposium discussion group devoted to one of the four symposium themes, and then explored the theme at length in an analytical essay. Thus each of the four essays is informed not only by symposium presentations and discussion in plenary sessions, but also by the ideas emerging in the specialized discussion group dedicated to a particular theme.
