The objective of this study is to investigate differences and similarities in leadership characteristics between United States Navy admirals and members of the Senior Executive Service employed by the Department of the Navy. Using the Lominger LEADERSHIP ARCHITECT® Competency Sort Cards and structured personal interviews, the study will examine the leadership characteristics of the two groups. The intended result is a better understanding of the motives, expectations, values, and styles of these two groups and how they affect the operation of the U.S. Navy, as well as an addition to the leadership knowledge base.
