Abstract:

Military people love the word leadership. So often, however, when they use the term they emasculate it. It may come as a shock to any, but leadership is not an exclusive property of those in uniform The problem is largely semantic as illustrated by the statement of the Navy Division Officers Guide that management is something leaders do-most management literature sees it just the opposite. Careful attention to definition, a review of appropriate scholarly literature, and careful self-assessment can assist prospective officers in the important task of learning about leadership. Viewing officership as a combination of managership and leadership can help us cut a proper path through the folklore. Author
