820 words - 4 pages

Moral courage is to raise your hand, overcome one’s fear, and claim for something that is wrong. A military leader exerts his power influencing with his positon power (in case of military the rank) and/or personal power (how does one person is seen in the organization). The leader, who has a position power, and doesn’t claim for something that is wrong or exerts moral courage, take the risk of loosing personal power and credibility within his organization. If the senior leader exerts moral courage within an cohesive organization he will probably gain personal power and credibility throught the organization. It means that his organization will support and trust on him. For this reason the leader should has to take into account many factors: The culture of his organization, if there is cohesion in his organization, what is his superior’s behavior, and how to built trust between superiors and subordinates. In both cases, a military senior officer will not loose his position power. On the other hand, the subordinate that doesn’t have position power (young officers, warrant officers, and enlisted officers) and claims for something that is wrong or exercise their moral courage, will probably gain personal power within his group or organization. So there is a close relationship between personal and position power and there always be risks if there is not communication and a cohesive organization. There is also a huge risk with a person that has power and claim for something that is wrong, in this person can loose the opportunity to log in better positions if the system is corrupt.
