JLBC TEAM BUILDING AT THE SQUAD LEVEL
Establishing a Positive Climate
Squad leaders set the climate in their squad. This is crucial to building a high-performing team that embodies the Army values and helps the team become trained, cohesive, disciplined, and physically fit.
“Climate can significantly influence many critical outcomes: readiness, performance, morale, motivation, mutual respect, and discipline.”

Building and Maintaining a Positive Climate
Climate is the atmosphere that leaders at all levels create within their organizations. Leaders establish a positive climate through their actions. Temperatures are much easier to change than culture. There is evidence every time, there is a change in leadership within an organization.
