In its entirety, that is what a great leader is for. That is, to target a person’s strengths and sharpen them for the better. But, it is the duty of the follower to be self-aware of their strengths for them to be sharpened. I live by the motto of, “doors will be opened for you, but you must walk through them”.

One of the most common themes used in propaganda is ‘us vs. them’ where the speaker aims to persuade the audience to join with them and go against the enemy party.

In James Scott’s writings about “Everyday Forms of Resistance”, he makes many points about power and where it may lie, even if the points are unintentional they provide a solid argument with great examples to back up those arguments. Scott argues that a vast realm of political action is overlooked for two reasons. The first reason is that it is not openly declared in the usually understood sense of “politics”. Second, the group action displayed is not how we normally understand collective action. From these two reasons, Scott suggested that arguments could be developed, stating that “much of the politics of subordinate groups fall into the category of “everyday forms of resistance”, these activities should most definitely be considered political.””
After my crucible event, I realized that we have to take the time and start investing in the people that share the same values and beliefs that we do. A lot of Soldiers want to do the right thing, but at times require the right person to lead them. John Kotter in the book, “Leading Change”, states that if employees have a shared sense of purpose, it will be easier to initiate actions to achieve that purpose. Bringing your subordinates and communicating your intent repetitively will create a shared understanding that will align the whole organization towards the same goals. In any organization we need to ensure that we retain the ones that share the same beliefs and values in order to maintain and strengthen our culture.
In the training, we attain people attention, motivates them to care them and encourage them to achieve the common goals that what we do in the leadership we engage followers, motivates them shows them the clear vision to achieve the common goal.

Leaders select the right person for the right job because they know about the strengths and weakness of their team vs compare to the trainer just tell us how to perform in the particular situation with specific behavior.

Many of these officers are given tremendous tasks that have life-altering results for the followers within the organization. Therefore, leaders must demonstrate good character, presence, and intellect in order to establish trust while working with others both inside and outside of the
