A Proper Style of Command and Their Impact in Maritime Safety

Very often, when speaking about the exercise of command, we think rather on how to control the crew, than how to achieve the best from them. We also may classify captains according to the way they exercise their command and so we speak about authoritarian captains, dialoging captains, weak captains, etc, as if the style of command would be something depending of their character. However, in a proper sense, the style of command is something that doesn’t depend of the character of a captain, but on the professional maturity of the different crew members.
