Chief: as per the conversation during our meeting, you asked me why I wanted to be a battalion chief (BC). In answer to your question, I have identified the following three reasons.
The United States Naval Academy touts itself as being one of the nation’s premier “leadership laboratories”. The most basic, fundamental purpose of the Naval Academy, explicitly stated in the mission statement, is “to graduate leaders” to serve our nation. From a public relations and recruitment point-of-view, this statement carries a considerable amount of value; it is precisely this ardent dedication to building leaders of character that separates us from other fine institutions of higher education, such as Harvard and MIT. Unfortunately, I feel that an overemphasis on the Naval Academy’s ability to produce leaders has the potential to bring about complacency and a lack of initiative within the Brigade of Midshipmen. After all, there is
Leader Competencies are leadership skills and behaviors that contribute to superior performance. Leaders outdated skills and behaviors encouraged change over many years. The three main categories of competences are to Lead, Develop, and Achieve. Army leaders serve to lead others, develop themselves, environment and profession as a whole, and to also achieve organizational goals. In order for an Army leader to lead they must apply the attributes to guide Soldiers towards a common goal and mission accomplishments.
Being a Middle School Leader would be an exciting job for next year as I would get to represent our year level and middle school with respect and dignity. I want to become a middle school leader as I want to use it as a stepping stone for more important leader jobs in the future such as school captain or even working as a leader in my career beyond school. In addition I have been class captain and I’m the one of the leaders in my basketball team. Furthermore I want to work with the other leaders that get selected and create a positive middle school which each and every student would look forward to coming each
Chino Hills High ASB is a well-recognized organization not only by students and staff at CHHS, but by programs like the California Association of Student Leaders. A select group of students from Chino Hills High ASB attended a conference put on by CASL, and for the past 11 years Chino Hills High ASB has won the Outstanding Leadership Program Award. The group of students who accepted this award on behalf of the CHHS Leadership program were Caleb Andrews, Bradley Mautz, Adam Cullen, Tessa Grotz, Mitchell Matthews, Josh Stroup, Alex Ro, Tanner Schroder, Audrey Johnstone, and Gullian Dyker. At the conference this year, Adam Cullen, the ASB President for the upcoming 2017-2018 school year, was elected to be on the board for the California Association of Student Leaders as a Southern Director.
Leadership is the most important aspect of a band. Depending on the qualities of the leaders, they are what can either hold the band up or tear them apart. Leadership is about more than just having a better social life or popularity status, which is how a lot of students treat it. Leadership should be treated professionally and with true passion. I had a good understanding of what makes a good leader before, but my understanding heightened after talking to my Fine Art’s counselor, Mrs. Wallace, about her views on what makes a good leader. Being punctual, firm yet fair, and using language everyone is able to understand are Mrs. Wallace’s main principles for being a good leader. My original views differ from
Most of the leadership I had to deal with in the Marine Corps. was the same way Rochard Fuld used to control his followers. I am blessed I had to deal with that type of disgusting treatment for four years. It has taught me using fear, intimidation and favoritism is never the answer to accomplish the organizations mission. As leaders, we need to treat people how we expect and deserve to be valued. I am appalled that your mother had to show up to work in fear, dealing with intimidation.
The Army Reserve Officers ' Training Corps (ROTC), as it exists today, began with President Wilson signing the National Defense Act of 1916. Although military training had been taking place in civilian colleges and universities as early as 1819, the signing of the National Defense Act brought this training under single, federally-controlled entity: The Reserve Officers ' Training Corps. Army ROTC is the largest officer-producing organization with the American military, having commissioned more than half a million second lieutenants since its
Screaming cadre and the pounding sound of Reveille yanked me from my restless sleep. Blinded by the harsh fluorescent light that was being shined in my eyes, I squinted at my watch and saw that it was only three o’clock in the morning. As I clambered out of my bunk and headed to physical training that morning, I was keen to conquer the challenges that I would face that day. As cliche as it might sound, the Cadet Leadership Course did not just break me down and impose a respect for authority, but it also ingrained and tested my ability to become a servant leader and a team player.
During my high school years I was able to channel my passion to examine discrimination and social development through my involvement with the Sadie Nash Leadership Project (SNLP). SNLP is a woman’s education and advocacy nonprofit committed to promoting leadership among underrepresented young women. For the first time in my life, I was having deep personal conversations with empowered women. We sought to inspect and challenge unequal power dynamics based on numerous systems of oppression. We questioned why women didn’t feel empowered to make decisions and be leaders, as well as what actions and involvement we as young women can have to impact change on a larger scale. I was in a room surrounded by passionate women, of different ages; racially,
Leadership requires broad thinking and this work with Grand City University is helping me expand my thoughts. Buller (2015) wrote extensively about both implementing changes and the necessary consideration for the people involved in those changes. As we went through the second simulation, internal partnerships and mission motivated my decisions. Leaders must address stakeholder concerns if we plan to enter into this or any other form of partnership. University-corporate partnerships have an established history (Ryan & Heim, 1997), which will help us glean insight to make them work for our stakeholders.
Although I organized the Outpost Challenge phase of this training course, I was not directly responsible for watching over the participants at their outpost camps. This duty fell under the jurisdiction of another top youth staff member, and this included taking
In the event that, I record observations of my first leader for one family I provide care for, I have determined that she is in most definitely task oriented. To demonstrate, she prioritizes her daily schedule by following her everyday tasks. First, she has us wake up the kids the same time everyday for school followed by breakfast. Second she preps their lunches for school along with making a weekly grocery list. Then, takes the kids to school and heads to work. As soon as, the kids get home from school she gets them snacks and directs me to assist them in homework. In that time, I take over watching the kids and take care of feeding them dinner, playing games, doing outside activities, as well as helping them take their showers and get ready for bed. Finally, after she gets home from the gym, she prepares her kids
The objective of this paper is to reflect on the leadership and management skills observed during Leadership Practicum. This author has chosen to interview Robin Mason, Director of Clinical Informatics at South Bay Hospital and preceptor to this author.
Next year, I hope to be on Link Crew again for my final year, as well as the World Awareness club and I will be applying to be on the Prime Minister’s Federal Youth Council.
