2-21. While most Army Civilians historically support military forces at home stations, Army Civilians also deploy with military forces to sustain theater operations. As evidenced by the increasing demands of recent deployments, Army Civilians have served at every level and location, providing expertise and support wherever needed. Army Civilians support their military counterparts and often remain for long periods within the same organization, providing continuity and stability that the highly mobile personnel management system used for the military rarely allows. However, when the position or mission dictates, Army Civilians may transfer or deploy to meet the needs of the Army. U NIFIED A CTION P ARTNERS 2-22. The Army team may include members of other government agencies, intergovernmental organizations, and coordination with nongovernmental organizations and the private sector. When added to an organization, members of these groups change both the makeup and the capabilities of the combined team. While leaders may exercise formal authority over joint servicemembers attached to a unit, there are different cultures within the services. Understanding these differences will make coordination easier. Typically, leaders will not have formal authority over interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational partners. Leaders must exercise a different form of leadership more focused on collaboration to influence and guide the behavior of members of multinational forces. Leaders must foster a command climate that includes and respects all members. 2-23. Developing teams within organizations begins early in the operations process and continues throughout execution. Leaders develop understanding by training and planning with unified action partners. Sustained engagement with host nation governments and forces enhances the developed understanding. Integrating capabilities during unified land operations requires interaction and preparation before commanders commit forces. Integration occurs through training exercises, exchange programs, and training events resulting in greater collaboration in developing systems and equipment for the forces involved.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
