Recent changes in social environment have caused men to seek higher level personal goals of status, self-satisfaction and morale independence. Leadership techniques, directing groups towards the accomplishment of the Navy's mission, must be revised accordingly. This study attempts to show, through a comparison of the effectiveness of democratic, autocratic and laissez-faire leadership climates in various working groups, the effects of human relations, group dynamics and group decision making upon naval leadership. Findings show that dynamic leadership which creates a democratic working environment, through the application of group decision techniques, provides the most effective motivation towards accomplishing the Navy's mission while satisfying individual needs.
