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.
I choose to take a different outlook, I believe that true leadership is taking what the military gives you and making better people out of them. Resulting in better sailors and finally, the outcome is an elite fighting force that works as a team and can accomplish any task, including the ones that they themselves do not believe they can do. CMDCM Ronald Clark one of my mentors instilled this philosophy in me from my start of being a Chief Petty Officer. He always told me “I do not care if I am successful, so long as when I am done, I have made a crew of better people when they leave my command.” That has always resonated with me in a way that has molded me into the Chief that I am today. I have a lot of shortcomings; however if it was not for those words I would have never fought so hard for my people and molded a group of guys into an efficient unit.
The biggest reason I want to go into the navy is because it’ll keep me on a straight path throughout my life. After Researching the Navy I have decided to pursue this career. To join the Navy one must complete basic training, which will be taught to everyone in the any branch of the military. After basic training is completed one will be taught technical or advanced training in the profession that they are interested in. There are so many types of training that anybody who joins could take and some even help for after one’s service is completed.
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
First and foremost, I understand that I am applying to be an appointed leader in the United States Army. That I am voluntarily stepping up into a role that requires decisiveness, character, passion, courage, modesty and commitment. That If I am appointed, I will be trained to be a technical leader, trainer, operator, manager, and advisor first above all else, and a Pilot second. These are all characteristics that define the type of leader you will find I am and have always been in the Navy as an Electrician's mate 2nd Class Petty Officer. It is those natural traits that lead me to strongly believe to not only have the aptitude for flying, but the attitude and enthusiasm that the Army seek out in all their Warrant Officer Flight Training candidates.
With this theory, the leader is directly in control of the event by giving out directions and orders to members. The interpretation of the theory could be that the leader has a vision or goal on how to get to the next destination; he/she sees a path and a formula that could be advantageous to the organization and makes all others to follow this path with him. He is like a war commander giving a commanding order to his troops on where to take and when to take action against the enemy. The leader has a solution and a principle on satisfaction, and he is going to make every members of the organization to go by his solution and principle in order to achieve the targeted satisfaction score. He can force them, punish or reward them in order to get the task done.
This allows for orders to be quickly and effectively issued to the Marines. It also allows for accountability to be easily to conducted so that the commander will know if any of his Marines are missing, sick, or injured. This is also one of the most important reasons for the rank structure to have been created is that any time a commander can find out the condition of the Marines in their
As a leader the captain should be the role model for the entire team on and off the field. The leader should plan before the execution. Everyone should get leadership qualities from the schooling itself, schooling involves teaching, training, mentoring, developing. Leader should have a legal responsibility to provide a healthy and safe environment for employees. A visionary leader is effective in manifesting his or her vision to achieve the goals in time and to achieve success.
There are few leadership strategies that can be used to re-energize the workforce; such as: 1. Participative Theory is an ideal leadership style that takes into consideration the input of its associates. Leaders are encouraged to involve staff and all group members, so they know that their contributions and participations are important, and they have the right to say no to any suggestion. 2. Situational Theories propose that leaders choose the best course of action based upon situational variables.
