Columbus like many that have gone before us are examples of the Character, Presence, and Intellect ADP 6-22 (2012), that we should all strive for and will more times than not strengthen your leadership qualities. I only hope that I can inspire soldiers that follow me to have the same fortitude to use their minds and defend their thoughts even when they are the minority. If I can leave that as my legacy then I did something right, leaving them with a strong base for which to build
Again, perhaps the developmental process becomes the most productive part of the exercise. And akin to strategic plans, a command philosophy deserves discussion and feedback to ensure its understanding and relevance. Left alone--rarely mentioned, contested, or unrevised-- a philosophy does little harm but also little good. A command philosophy written in 1982 for a Corps Building fighting units requires more leadership than management, but smart management is also essential. Recognizing that we have responsibilities for both immediate readiness and the future vitality of our Army, it is clear that we must build motivation, confidence, and mutual trust within our units—even in the face of horrendous personnel turbulence.
As an NCO, I have given my best to ensure mission success and train my soldiers. Concurrently, I continue the search for unique and challenging intelligence positions. Becoming a warrant officer will open doors to those new challenges I seek, expands the possibilities of specific training and unique assignment opportunities while still providing the opportunity to train, lead, and mold the next generation of soldiers. During my 11 years as an Intelligence Analyst, I have excelled in positions of greater responsibility and genuinely believe i have more to offer the Army. Throughout my career, I have taken my job seriously and taken pride in my work.
That is the wrong answer. Leaders should feel obligated to be the prime example and enforce the Army Values and Warrior Ethos not only thru their action on duty but also off duty. For example cutting edge to get the job done quicker is the wrong answer, it show that you don’t live the army values. It show that you have loyalty to you task, respect to the leader that told you complete the task, and the personal courage to do the right thing when no one is looking. Not only should a leader live the army values and warrior ethos while on duty but a leader should live them off duty.
TC 7-22.7 NCO Guide (2015) states that all Soldiers and leaders must master the fundamental warrior skills supporting tactical and technical competence to execute full-spectrum operations among diverse cultures, with joint, interagency, intergovernmental, and multinational partners, at the level appropriate for each cohort and echelon. To be a lifelong partner of the total force there is a need to be a lifelong learner, a need for problem solving as a team to meet each
Having commitment and passion for something can make you an outstanding leader. Being an athlete, I know the importance of commitment and passion. If you are passionate about doing something, then you will be more committed. Personally, I think know that the NJHS will be a good fit for me because I am very passionate about helping people and I would be very committed in doing so. Accountability and responsibility go hand in hand for leaders.
In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to our personal and professional lives as well. It defines who we are and who we aspire to become. https://www.army.mil/values/warrior.html My leadership philosophy is based on a set of values that I try to model and expect others to aspire to and attain. While I have never been in a supervisory position, I believe leaders often stand in front but rather leads from within and true leadership transcends any position on an organizational chart. Above all, I believe that the two most important assets of a leader are sound vision and impenetrable integrity.
This presents a fallacious appeal to authority. The viewer automatically assumes the U.S. military is linked with this program because silhouette logo portrays one soldier helping another, and the image represents the military’s value of “no man left behind.” The advertisement’s use of ethos is meant to be effective because the audience perceives the United States military as a large, authoritative force. The viewers respect the military’s values and its seal of approval because the armed forces fight and protect the audience. Additionally, the connection to the military gives the illusion that the armed forces support the Wounded Warrior Project; however, the United States military is an expert during combat and has no authority for the treatment of seriously injured veterans. The military’s deceptive authority on the treatment of wounded veterans carries little evidential weight.
Understanding that some Military Occupations are tougher than others, yet our goal remains; to mold diverse Leaders by providing them the foundational standards as American Soldiers. Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless-Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage, are the core values we live and breathe as American Soldiers. We must not forget or become laxed because these values are the backbone to the Army and are foundational truths to our success. As Non-Commissioned Officers (NCO) we will reprioritize our conduct, in order for these values to resignate home within us. As Professional Soldiers, we must remember why we remain disciplined and faithful at all times, Therefore, despite what we feel, we must hold true to obedience, and at the right time our fruits will unveil.
And as Mario Puzo once said, “The strength of a family, like the strength of an army, lies in its loyalty to each other.” They have to figure out that they need to use each other to make everything come together even when times get hard and everything becomes scarce we need to work come together as one and realize what is actually happens. Also, they really understood what LOYALTY actually is, it is not just being with everyone it is relaying on everyone when everything does not go the expected way and working together to becoming a stronger team. So Odysseus finally come to a conclusion that loyalty is the best way to go. As they went through all the journeys they figure that they had to become as one because they figured out that the strength as one is much stronger that the strength of just a few who think they are better than everyone so they became a family as each journey they went through became harder. So Odysseus learns that loyalty is the best way to
In this research and discussions with Officers I realized how narrow my views had been, and I learned how vital and closely connected all the branches are. It was in this moment of clarity, I understood, I can commit myself completely to any branch of the Army as an Officer and truly love my job. I still have my preference and know the Physical Therapist program would be my first choice, but I would strive to be the best Officer for my Soldiers in any position which I am assigned. In short, I want to be an Army Officer because of the amazing impact they have on Soldiers lives. No matter the branch, the level of professionalism and formal education placed upon Army Officers makes them the best men and women in the world.
My time in JROTC has been one of the better things that I have done. JROTC has shown me that I need to make sure I have been on my best behavior. JROTC has shown me that I need to make sure that I have honor, Integrity and Respect. Not only for others but also for myself and the leaders of this fair country in which I live. JROTC has shown me that there are many life skills that I will learn as I continue on with my career within the military.
Young cadets will be faced with new challenges and lessons that my generation will wish we had. Technology will improve and the program will be provided with high tech gear. As acts of terrorism in the United States increase, cadets could be trained to professionally respond to such events. As of now, there are Army, Air Force, Navy, and Marine ROTC’s across the nation; a part of the curriculum is learning the customs of that certain branch. In the future, I can imagine the course extending to all branches and teaching the basics of each to ensure a better understanding of the entire U.S. military.
If you can’t have confidence in your organizations, your peers, your leadership, then there are serious issues in your organization. In the eyes of the young soldier, that feeling of knowing people have your back and people can rely on you, play a huge role in the development of your career as well as your perception of the Army. Looking back on my experience has taught me to pay attention to the upbringing of that young soldier. Not only will they feel part of the team, they might be filling into the role of a leader one day which will overall influence the way Army fights and will wins wars. In my legacy, I’d like to leave an imprint of influence in leaders who are competent and confident, capable of flexibility and lethality when
Although limited my responsibilities to only three has greatly reduced what I write it has also forced me to choose what are the most important to me personally. To lead the men and woman within the armed forces is at the core of my responsibilities as an officer. Secondly, I will be required to make command decisions, lawful orders, that although may not be well received are truly motivated by the needs of the Soldiers. Allowing them not only to defend themselves but also the equipment and personnel placed in their ward. Last but not least I will be accountable, my actions and decisions will be held to unimaginable scrutiny I must understand that my responsibilities aren’t easily
