Military leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish the mission by providing purpose, direction, and motivation. Another significant aspect of emphasized by the army is charisma. Therefore, army strategy to have a great leader is to choose people with high charisma since follower are always drawn to leaders with charisma. By having a high charisma they can command the follower easily. The basic task of a leader are: achieve the mission with zero fatality.
This is the first step in selecting and developing our future leaders within our ranks. First and foremost our current warrant officers must be the honest broker when recommending a soldier. If a soldier does not meet the technical competencies that are required of them in the position they are currently serving then how can they be expected to be the future of our cohort. The senior warrant officer who is recommending the applicant must hold the value of the warrant officer cohort above his or her own loyalty to the person they are recommending. Recommending someone based
With any agency or department under the criminal justice umbrella, it is vital that the vision and overall goals of their existence are to be responsible for supporting the will of the majority and protecting the privileges of all people. These principles are outlined in the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution which directs individuals who are associated with the criminal justice system shall “ensure justice” and advocate “domestic tranquility” (Cronkhite, 2013, p.297). Agency employees that work in the criminal justice system must follow concepts that exercise discretion, which are the decisions that can deny a citizen their life, liberty or property. These employees will enforce the law and preserve the constitutional rights of the public such
Running Head: MILITARY LEADERSHIP 1 MILITARY LEADERSHIP 2 Military Leadership: Case of Lt. Col. Jimmy Doolittle Name of Author: Institution: Date: Introduction Effective leadership is widely accepted as a vital component to ensuring performance of teams and organizations. In military circles, good leadership is one that reflects the ethical code of conduct as well as driving units to the anticipated vision in future. A military elite has an immense role in making critical decisions, at the time to ensure attainment of results. In the modern times, issues of workforce diversity, the explosion of technology and limited resources shape how military leaders lead teams to desired directions. The current paper analyses the personality
I believe that our fighting forces need strong minded individuals who are driven and determined to always strive for the Army to stay relevant and strong. Consequently, the recruiter duty is to recruit those who are passionate with a strong desire and pride to serve the nation. A sense of pride in which does not feel like you are doing a job, but honor to be in the Army’s uniform. As a combat veteran who have deployed to both Iraq and Afghanistan multiple times, I have the capability due to taught persistence, determination, organization and built stamina from past experiences, to be an admirable recruiter. Being out in combat have shown me the kind of heart within a person the Army need, the kind of fight within an individual that the army need, and the characteristics in which makes up a US Army personnel.
In order for an Army leader to lead they must apply the attributes to guide Soldiers towards a common goal and mission accomplishments. Lead is broken down into five sub topics and of those topics the most important ones to me are: builds trust, leads by example, and communicates. Leaders build trust to mediate relationships and encourage commitment among followers. Trust starts from respect among individuals and grows from common goals and a shared understanding. Leaders lead by example by being role models and by never allowing their subordinates to do things that they would not do themselves.
Trust is one of the easiest attribute to loose and the hardest to get back. “Army leaders recognize that organizations, built on mutual trust and confidence, successfully accomplish missions” (Department of the Army, 2012, p. v). As stated in Army Doctrine Reference Publication (ADRP) 6-22, having trust and confidence in each other is necessary for mission accomplishment, which can be hard when there is a presence of abuse of power. Leaders must be aware of the atmosphere they are creating and should take care of all issues equally. The Army have different creeds and oaths, and all of them are about ensuring we take care of Soldiers.
Professionals also need to assume their civic identities by ensuring that their work contributes toward adding “to the public value for which the profession stands” (2004,p. 23). Assuming such civic identities requires application of two things. First, professionals must show that their intentions are “public-regarding” (Peters 2004, p. 48). Second, the practices that professionals undertake must be for “public-regarding ends and in a public-regarding way” (Hatcher 2008, p. 25).
1.1 Overview The Armed Forces of a country are its government sponsored defence, fighting forces and organizations. They exist to further the foreign and domestic policies of their governing body and to defend that body and the nation it represents from external and internal aggressors. In broad usage the term ‘armed forces’ and ‘military’ are often treated synonymously. Sometimes, a country’s armed forces may include both its military and other paramilitary forces. The obvious benefit to a country in maintaining armed forces is in providing protection from foreign threats and from internal conflict.
“Voting ensures that our system of government is maintained and individual voices are clearly heard by elected officials.” For instance, this responsibility was set to be a guide law to citizens for them to understand the importance of voting. This is because, leaders are most of the time referred to people who are cause of different problems. Therefore, since they are the ones who can elect a good leader, then should understand the importance of their involvement. In addition to this responsibility, Americans are responsible to respect and obey federal, state, and local laws (US Citizenship and Immigration Service, n.d). This is a complement to the first responsibility.
