One can argued that different CLM skills and attributes are required at different levels, however there is no definite CLM skills and attributes required for each levels. Nevertheless, in my opinion, the skills and attributes for strategic Leader/CEO ,in both military and civilian Organization, needs to be more comprehensive and more valued, Leaders at this should have the ability to create a vision or mission statement with intent and end state. In fact, most of the experienced skills and attributes should be highly demanded in high level of Command which ,simply because "Unlike traditional warfare, such operations require widespread interaction with civilian populations, coalition forces, civilian agencies, and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs)." In addition ,each Organization, nation and religion bring with it a different culture and the Commander is ultimately responsible for developing himself as well as an effective team that can overcome its own internal cultural differences in order to achieve the mission. But ,that does not mean, at all ,Organization either military nor civilian, should not apply maximum effort in building up the mid and lower level Leader skills and attributes. As the, Operational Commanders require experience in both the operational and tactical levels, to allow them to improve their knowledge and intuition needed to understand how tactical and operational possibilities interrelate with each other. Furthermore ,the most demanded attributes for Tactical Leaders are these which assuring them competent dealing and execution of their routine or normal daily jobs as well as critical or wicked issue they may come across. On a final note, "[Leaders] at lower levels [ to be] exposed to experiences... ... middle of paper ... ...ness is taking on greater importance throughout the Army, and particularly at lower levels in the chain of Command. Likewise intellectual acuity, while always a desirable trait, is being applied in different decision-making processes to deal with new challenges. Thus, it is now more important to develop officers with well-grounded intellectual and critical thinking abilities, practiced intensively across a range of situations". Ultimately, as research has shown, the most successful Leaders should have strengths in the following emotional intelligence competencies: self- awareness, self-regulation, motivation, empathy, and social skill. Besides mentioned skills and contributes, professional experience, judgment and appropriate decision making as well as applying full knowledge of Leadership, will definitely give all Commanders the chance of achieving success.
