Abstract (Summary)
The purpose of this thesis is to quantitatively analyze the relationship between midshipmen leadership and morale at the United States Naval Academy. The goal is to determine if there is a specific set of leadership characteristics that directly contribute to positive company morale within the Brigade of Midshipmen. The study is quantitative and uses the Naval Academy Brigade Climate survey as its primary instrument. The results of this effort indicate that leadership characteristics that are centered on equality and fairness have a statistically significant influence on a unit's morale. Additionally, the thesis provides recommendations for clarifying the definition of morale in a military context along with recommendations for shaping survey questions when attempting to measure morale.
