“Leaders create command climate. Positive leadership can eliminate micro‐management, careerism, integrity violations and the zero defects mind‐set. These attitudes are an unfortunate side effect of the turmoil created by the downsizing of our Army. These attitudes have appeared in the past‐but we defeated them. We will do so again.”
