Abstract

"Military operations are very often accompanied by various levels of stress.
This chapter aims to discuss the concepts and factors of stress and samhandling. The
main factors are social support, self-efficacy, resilience and hardiness, implicit coordination,
and character strengths. Individual factors are self-efficacy, resilience and
hardiness, and character strengths. Team factors are social support, team efficacy,
and implicit coordination. A model describing stress and samhandling, including
the above-mentioned individual and team factors and their relations, is introduced
and discussed. The conclusion is that four individual and two team factors are seen
as important if one wishes to counteract the effects of stress and increase both the
individual’s and the team’s ability to conduct samhandling when facing unforeseen
incidents."

Abstract

"The purpose of this chapter is to discuss the importance of trust in military
samhandling. Trust serves as one of the main prerequisites for effective collaboration
(Kouzes & Posner, 2003). The Norwegian Armed Forces’ (NAF) core business is
the planning and execution of military operations (Forsvarsstaben, 2014). One of
the main tasks of the NAF is to plan for the unexpected and, ultimately, for war. The
chapter further discuss trust in military leadership, and leadership and situational
awareness. Leadership as a social interaction process that builds trust is discussed,
and samhandling is seen in a military context. A basic “trust-based model” of samhandling
is introduced and viewed in terms of internal and external framework factors.
The chapter concludes that trust is still quite an open concept, and that trust
is essential for the effective accomplishment of military missions. The basic trust
model is an attempt to underline understanding of the importance of trust in a
military planning and leadership context."
