Relations in the military team

In the military collectives of units and subunits of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation there are all kinds of relationships (communication, joint activity, behavioral acts (actions)), because the nature of military service involves the manifestation of cohesion, understanding and interaction of military personnel in carrying out various tasks.

The main functions of interpersonal relations of military personnel in a military team include:

• information exchange;

• interaction;

• mutual understanding;

• impact on emotional experiences.

Relations in a military team can occur:

• top to bottom (boss - subordinate);

• from bottom to top (subordinate - head);

• horizontally (between military personnel in the absence of subordination between them).

Relations in a military team can be:

• Official (arise as a result of their official duties, are regulated and regulated by the combined arms charters of the RF Armed Forces, rules, regulations and standards of conduct);

• Unofficial (based on personal sympathies and interests, without a legal basis, generally accepted laws and norms);

• Business (both formal and informal, related to the implementation of joint activities);

• Personal (add up regardless of joint activities)

• Rational (built on the terms of mutual agreement in order to obtain mutual benefit);

• Emotional (add up to sensory experience, subjective perception of people (like - not like));

The relationship between the military may vary by the stages of their development:

The first stage is an indifferent relationship (people who do not know each other or know little, cannot have certain relationships).

The second stage is the adaptation relationship, when the military recognize each other. At the same time, informal small groups are formed (two to three people each). Conflict relations can arise here, both closed (a person experiences the severity of relations, but does not externally express), and open.

The third stage is the strengthening of relationships, when relations between group members are stabilized, and as a result, relationships within informal small groups are strengthened. The members of the group begin to possess the prescribed social role functions. The moral values ​​of the group are formed and strengthened. Violation of relations between military personnel can lead to a conflict situation and, ultimately, to a conflict. In such a situation, there can be no talk of any normal activity of the military collective.

The deterioration of relations between military personnel usually does not occur suddenly, but gradually. It is important to understand in time that the emotional intensity begins to exceed the permissible, and correctly terminate it. Sometimes the relationship between the military deteriorates as a result of distortion or loss of information or due to the fact that the interacting parties view the same situation from different perspectives. These two reasons can cause controversy. They should be avoided.
The intense rhythm of military service, the presence of socio-economic, environmental, physical, psychological, toxic and other factors contribute to the formation of increased anxiety and aggressiveness among military personnel. This increases the conflict. The current mental state changes during the day under the influence of various circumstances, sometimes significantly. Success, fatigue, communication with colleagues, physiological state of the body, weather, etc. - all this affects the state of the psyche and, therefore, the occurrence of conflict. Low resistance to the effects of conflict factors is a negative personality trait. Conflict resistance of military personnel depends on several groups of factors:

• psychophysiological, manifested in emotional-volitional stability;

• cognitive, manifested as mental cognitive processes of a person;

• motivational, manifested in the orientation of the personality and its motives in a specific communication situation;

• socio-psychological, reflecting the socio-psychological characteristics of the individual, the stereotypes of its interaction with others.

The vital activity of a military collective is largely determined by the nature of the relationship between its members. For example, benevolent relationships aimed at supporting each other increase the quality of combat training activities, and not established ones destroy the team and impede the joint activities of its members, prevent its cohesion and create conflicts.

Relations between military personnel are regulated by both laws in force in society and military regulations that have the force of laws. They formulated the basic principles of relations: unity of command, subordination, military partnership and friendship, collectivism, military politeness, honor and dignity, justice, humanism. These principles are the legal and moral foundations of the relationship of both official (official) and unofficial (informal) nature. Service relationships are manifested in the performance of military-functional duties: combat duty, guard and internal (shift) service, combat training and other official tasks. Informal relationships are formed and developed in the interpersonal contacts of military personnel, primarily in the sphere of life, leisure and leisure. Here, the individual psychological characteristics of each warrior play a role.

The widest variety of relationships is companionship. They are based, as a rule, on business contacts, where the goals, means and results of joint activities and communication determine the development of relations and the distribution of common functions. Hence the well-established form of appeal of servicemen to each other - "comrade".

Friendship is also one of the varieties of human relationships arising from mutual assistance and understanding. It begins with sympathy for another person, his respect. If sympathy is based, as a rule, on emotions, then respect is based on recognition of the high moral qualities of another person.
