General Officer Management Who wants to serve as a general officer?
General Von Mansteinon the German Officer Corps “There are only four types of officer. First, there are the lazy, stupid ones. Leave them alone, they do no harm… Second, there are the hard-working intelligent ones. They make excellent staff officers, ensuring that every detail is properly considered. Third, there are the hard-working, stupid ones. These people are a menace and must be fired at once. They create irrelevant work for everybody. Finally, there are the intelligent lazy ones. They are suited for the highest office.”
Army Values • LOYALTY: BEAR TRUE FAITH AND ALLEGIANCE TO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION, THE ARMY, YOUR UNIT, AND OTHER SOLDIERS. • DUTY: FULFILL YOUR OBLIGATIONS. • RESPECT: TREAT PEOPLE AS THEY SHOULD BE TREATED. • SELFLESS-SERVICE: PUT THE WELFARE OF THE NATION, THE ARMY, AND YOUR SUBORDINATES BEFORE YOUR OWN. • HONOR: LIVE UP TO ALL THE ARMY VALUES. • INTEGRITY: DO WHAT’S RIGHT, LEGALLY AND MORALLY. • PERSONAL COURAGE: FACE FEAR, DANGER OR ADVERSITY (PHYSICAL OR MORAL).
Marshall on Generalship… Qualities of a general officer: “… the most important factor of all is character, which involves integrity, unselfish and devoted purpose, a sturdiness of bearing when everything goes wrong are all critical, and a willingness to sacrifice self in the interest of the common good.” Advice: “Now that you are entering into a new status, accept my caution to organize for the long pull and do not permit yourself to be upset by irritations, misunderstandings, disappointments, and so forth… These are normal to an Army career in time of war… one must keep his head well above water and cultivate a certain philosophy along with a tenacity of purpose.” To which I would add: - Remember who you are… - Detachment - Cultivate good talent…
