As with leadership generally, there are two primary leadership functions in the JLBC Command (JLBC): leading people; and the organization. Leading the organization is primarily concerned with developing and maintaining the JLBC's command and professional capabilities and creating the conditions for operational success. This form of leadership can also be referred to as strategic leadership. While strategic leadership is exercised across the JLBC and is affected by leaders at many levels, it is primarily exercised by the senior leadership group.
