Perception of specific military skills – the impact of perfectionism and self-efficacy

1 Introduction Identifying the personal determinants of performance and success as officers is a key challenge for the armed forces ( Sellman et al. 2010 ) and is crucial in order to optimize recruitment and the overall outcome of military training programs ( Fosse et al. 2015 ). For many years, the major focus in military psychological research has been the study of stressors and their impact on stress reactions and impaired performance ( Moldjord et al. 2015 ), but some studies have also found that soldiers may increase their performance as a result of

Examining the relationship between personality, organizational political skill and perceived team performance in a multinational military staff exercise context

1 Introduction Military staff work is composed of the contributions of several smaller teams that are interdependent upon each other for the functioning level of the whole staff. Hittle and DeWitt (2012) note that higher-level staffs are comprised of smaller teams, which include staff members that encompass specialty skill sets, in order to reach greater results than one individual could do on their own. Therefore, considerable focus is placed upon the functioning levels of teams. Team performance is one of several factors that is often evaluated and

War as nothing but a duel: war as an institution and the construction of the Western military profession

security. Yet, as has since become clear, despite the discovery of numerous prefixes to war, no new strategic vocabulary has been devised to help in dealing with these actors. As Jan Willem Honig (2016 : 275–276) has argued, the militaries of developed states continue to “labour under the tyranny of outmoded ideas of how war and strategy work” to the point that mere adaptation “without thinking about war and strategy in novel ways” has resulted in limited success in recent wars in places like Afghanistan and Iraq. Shifting focus from developments in Afghanistan to the
