This is equally true for all organizations regardless of their nature, size and areas of operation. An armed force organization has some unique features and culture to achieve its broader goal of national security, harmony and peace keeping. Dynamics of global political environment, the ongoing political transformation and changing socio-economic landscape of the country, and technological innovations worldwide have been altering the way of leading and managing organizations whether public or private.

Nepal Army, a historical institution is going through reforms and capacity building for consolidating its strategic capabilities and competency of the force. Such reforms have always emphasized the role of leadership and managerial efficiency for effective functioning to achieve desirable transformation in governance system of the armed force. As senior officers of armed force, the officers of Nepal Army need to understand the mindset of high performance leaders, and tap into their own strengths to influence and lead with impact. They need to recognize different facets of leadership, such as inspiring and motivating teams, building commitment and managing resistance to change.
