3. CONCLUSION Recent peace, stability, and humanitarian operations across the globe illustrate the importance of good, strong, ethical leadership – particularly by senior leaders. Key recommendations from lessons within this publication include:  Senior leaders need to emphasize the importance of Protection of Civilians – whether included in the mandate or not. They should mentor subordinate leaders on the subjects of Protection of Civilians, Rules of Engagement, Use of Force, and Force Protection. They should establish an organizational climate that has elements of trust, unity of effort, and information-sharing – to facilitate responding to crises.  Organizations/agencies should address “success attributes” for senior leaders during pre-deployment training/education sessions. Attributes: o o o o o o o Visioning Mapping the environment Cross-cultural savvy Interpersonal maturity Unity of effort and purpose Strategic communication Determination toward the vision  Senior leaders should build relationships with partners at the outset of operations. They should establish coordination centers/mechanisms and make them adaptable for partners’ involvement. They should encourage use of unclassified information-sharing systems/tools and the integration of inputs from all stakeholders into a common operating picture.  Leaders should take steps to help bridge cultural differences between their organization and partner nation organizations, as well as cultural differences between their organization and the people of the host nation.
