One Army, Indivisible is one of the programs under the Center for the Army Profession and Ethic Program (CAPE). Soldiers and Civilians come together to work as one team to fulfill their duties as army professionals. The Soldiers and Civilians build a trust among each other to strengthen their relationships. They operate as an indivisible team by sticking together forming bonds that demonstrate Trust, Cohesion, Character, Competence, Commitment, and Community. The information paper, America’s Army-Our profession Theme, “One Army, Indivisible” (2016) gives information on how this program will teach and inspire an understanding of the Army Profession and enhance commitment to our professional obligations – to ourselves, each other, the Army and the American people.
According to John C. Maxwell “A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.” The military has taught me the important and the fundamentals of leadership through various forms, of training. In order an Army enlisted soldier to receive a promotion from the rank of Specialist to Sergeant, the solider must attend a thirty day training session called BLC (Basic Leadership Course). While attending soldiers are taught the basics of an Army leader through different classroom courses, field training exercises, and how to be an effective leader. Before I joined the Army, my definition of a leader was a person or thing that leads other people or things. My knowledge of a leader was simple and basic due to the fact that I never had to lead, now my understanding of a leader has changed through serving in the military.

This frame of reference provides the Marines with a baseline of knowledge that they can then utilize when making decisions. In other words, we can provide the tools for their tool box with job training, but critical thinking will enable them to select the right tool at the right time for the job. So as an organization, we must not be satisfied with just providing instruction on how to do their job in the Marine Corps, it is imperative that we also strive to enhance the Marine’s ability think about innovative ways to accomplish tasks. Too often, Marines may become satisfied with doing things “the way they have always been done”, but this line of thinking fails to foster new ideas. The critical thinker can find a solution to a problem by removing personal bias, thinking abstractly and looking at the problem from angles not previously
As I work my way up through the ranks taking on new responsibilities, I will be prepared for the basic needs of an officer. With an officer job, I could respond to more serious and upgraded duties to work successfully and effectively as a team captain. I also feel it is my obligation as an American citizen to pay homage to our veterans and country. It is important to keep the legacy of America alive, and as an officer I can see myself on the forefront. After seeing the multitude of honor veterans receive, my donation to them would be to continue their labor of freedom in the Navy.
When I was in basic training, I learned a plethora of skills. One of the most important was respect. The best change that occurred was I became more respectful; It became evident to me to respect those that deserved and insisted on it.

One of the positive sides of having Cohort connections whether it’s in the classroom or externally, is understanding that I’m not the only one pursuing my doctoral degree. It’s knowing others in my classroom or even those, who once took the course previously have all faced the same challenges. Take for example, I’m a fellow veteran and all veterans at the begin stages of their military career all went through boot camp. It was there that you learned the meaning of honor, loyalty, and integrity, and basically what it takes to be member of the armed forces. But knowing when I need to ask for help or if someone else needed assistance, it was always there.
The Army defines leadership as “the process of influencing people by providing purpose, direction and motivation to accomplish the mission and improve the organization” (ADP 6-22, 2012, p 1). Every Soldier in the United States Army has leaders they look up to and aspire to be because leader encompass core attributes and characteristics that shape the soldiers around him. For me, that leader is first sergeant (1SG) Stephen Liest because of his presence, character and intellect. His ability to lead, develop, and achieve inspired, shaped and motivated his soldiers to be better for themselves and for the organization. These competencies and attributes left a lasting impression, which formed the basis of the legacy I wish to leave behind.

To be able to apply this quote from Mr. Adam K. Thiel, you need to have the right personnel in the Training Division including management. Having competent instructor/trainer with the participation of management is essential to reach goals and objectives established by the Department.
