    This is very useful information for civilians too. I think it is interesting that the information about civilians: autonomy, personal achievement, social equality, and fluidity within social relationships are aspects identified in the civilian business culture and some social constructs. But, it is also interesting to note, that these aspects may change in careers that are service oriented: medical, first responders, mental healthcare providers, etc. For example, in mental healthcare, the provider may have the mission of the client becoming autonomous (decision making) and therefore remove personal achievement from the focus. It is so, that society hallmarks those civilian aspects but sometimes, there are missions that are just not clearly stated but there nonetheless. Thank you for this presentation.
