Is Military Leadership any different from that in other field of human endeavour?

One quote stuck with me as I entered high school: “Some will swim; most will sink.” This phrase came from the mouth of my History teacher Mr. Sanders. I was already petrified to take on such a transition. I was small, nervous, and unconfident.

This assignment is largely a reflection where I will analyze my personal leadership styles and reflect on how they are, or are not working. I will reflect on how I would like to change my leadership in the future based on concepts presented in the literature. I will also conduct a literature review to connect the concepts from my reflection to actual information about various leadership styles and models to build understanding. Last, I will speak to specific actions and practices I will implement in order to fill the gap between where I am now with my leadership and where I would like to be in the future. Future-Focus
The meeting that I attended this week was Narcotics Anonymous (NA). NA is a fellowship that includes men and women who struggle with addiction. The members of the group are supporters or recovering addicts, and the purpose is to maintain complete abstinence (Narcotics Anonymous, 2017).

Unfortunately, the night that I attended was not a traditional session, as they were celebrating the milestones of a few members.

As part of my learning, I decided to develop a community profile to gather information that would help me better understand the needs of the community, and the services available to it. This was a valuable piece of work, which allowed me to build a comprehensive picture of a community I knew very little about. Regular review of this profile would also be a good way of highlighting changes in the population over time, which may impact on service need. Visits to other agencies included Sligo FRC, the C.R.I.B Youth Project and Health Café, and Foroige National Youth Development Organisation, Carrick on Shannon. I met with a range of public health nurses, project co-ordinators, and youth and community support workers.
