Military Culture Shift: The Impact of War, Money, and Generational Perspective on Morale, Retention, and Leadership
by Corie Weathers
A guide to understanding and leading today's US military force.
Significant shifts in military culture have created a complex set of challenges, impacting morale and motivation, recruitment and retention, and program participation.
Military Culture Shift presents the story of US military service members, their families, and the institution itself, through the lens of multiple generations and key contributing factors. A licensed counselor and leadership consultant, author Corie Weathers draws from her professional work with military families and leaders, more than 15 years of research, and her own experience as the spouse of an active-duty service member, to offer narrative history, insights, and perspectives on:
- Generational viewpoints, from World War I veterans to today’s recruits (Gen Z)
- Short- and long-term impact of Department of Defense budget decisions
- Emerging social trends within the military community, especially post-9/11
- Cumulative effect of two decades of war on military family wellness
Of special interest to military leaders, service members, military family members, as well as historians, politicians, educators, and counselors, Military Culture Shift helps readers understand and embrace:
- How past decisions have led to the current state
- Generational differences in motivation, trust in authority, and learning styles
- Communication shifts that impact cohesiveness
- Leadership strategies to influence positive changes going forward
