Christopher Combest Thank you, Professor. This is an outstanding resource - I truly appreciate the invite. I just arrived at my first doctoral residency here in Phoenix. I am sure Mendeley will prove invaluable this week!

Hello all. George Reed - I like what you said, "it seems that the higher you go in the organization the less interest there is in toxic leadership as an organization issue;" however, it also seems that most change efforts have to start from the top leadership. So, how does one go about helping an organization that does not want to change even though they profess to?
George Reed
George Reed Christopher: You have hit on the policy paradox of it all. Changes to policy aren't likely without attention from the top, yet higher leadership doesn't often see this as a problem. Perhaps that's where we researchers come in. If there is a compelling case to be made based on good science then perhaps the scales can be lifted from their eyes. Consi...

George Reed

I'm not sure there is a conflict there that needs to be reconciled, just an acknowledgement that Army leaders sometimes have to tell people to do things they might otherwise not want to do. While I belie...
