WASHINGTON, D.C. : Army Report Points to Leadership Flaws

May 30, 1996|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

The Army is suffering leadership lapses. Officers are micro-managing, fearful that mistakes by underlings will kill their own chances for promotion. There is distrust in the officer corps and ethical slips too. These are among findings of an internal Army report that suggests failings among officers that are little known on the outside. Gen. Dennis J. Reimer, the Army chief of staff, highlighted the main points of the study, which has not been publicly released, in an article he wrote for Military Review. Reimer wrote of his anxiety over the study's indications of leadership flaws. He called the problem "an unfortunate side effect of the turmoil created by the downsizing of our Army."
