Abstract:

Over the last three years, the authors have examined a series of questions dealing with the communication relationships between supervisors and subordinates and some possible outcome variables in the military. The basic research question was to try to determine what types of supervisor communication lead to changes in performance, satisfaction and retention. In addition, the authors examined the effect of age and affiliation on the communication-outcome relationships. The paper will be a compilation of the findings over the last three years.
