Accordingly, they are the most important things a unit does. The Army must focus on three strategic ends for training the Total Force: training units to be versatile and ready to support combatant commanders worldwide;and holding commanders responsible for the development and execution of progressive, challenging and realistic training guided by the doctrine of mission command. The outcome of these efforts will be more adaptive forces capable of achieving regional alignment or mission tailoring as required. Training for operational adaptability will take place at home station and combat training centers, in Army institutions and while deployed. During this critical transition period, Army leaders must recognize that problems do not have predetermined solutions, so training and leader development must continue to foster creativity at every
As a profession of arms we have to keep balance. The two ways of balancing the role of a professional leader are with strategic leaders and the relationship between the Army’s culture and institutional practices. When the roles are balanced leaders have more professional satisfaction and are more likely to remain in the military. Military-technical, human developmental, moral-ethical, political-cultural expertise are the main four fields of the Army’s professional expertise. By continuous training, the Army makes us experts in each of these
Army Knowledge Management (AKM) is important to Senior Warrant Officers as our cohort continues to grow, it will continue to be even more important in the future. We as a force need to follow the principles of AKM so that we are prepared for battle and future conflicts as we currently exist in a rapidly evolving operational environment, where knowledge and information are just as critical to the success of battle as weapons and Soldiers are. Out of the twelve principles outlined in the “Army Knowledge Management Principles” paper I feel that principles four and eleven are the most important to a Senior Warrant Officer, in making a stronger and more agile force. According to the “Army Knowledge Management Principles” paper, principle four states that we should “use every interaction whether face-to-face or virtual as an opportunity to acquire and share knowledge” (p. 4). As a Senior Warrant Officer our bread and butter is knowledge and being able to gain and share it.
Countries striving to improve the strength (power) to create security. To achieve the national interest (national interest), the state act rationally, taking into consideration the strength, particularly the increase in the defense forces. According to the Act No. 3/2002 on State Defense, the main objective of Indonesia’s defense policy is to “protect and uphold state sovereignty, maintain territorial integrity of the unitary republic of Indonesia, and ensure the safety of Indonesian people from all forms of threats and disturbances.” In order to achieve this, the national defence is formulated into five interrelated strategic targets. “First, creating the national defence which is capable of confronting threats; second, creating the national defence which is competent to manage maritime, land and air territorial security; third, creating the national defence which is capable to take part in supporting the world peace based free and active foreign policy.
For the Army as an organization to be a successful organization and move forward, they must be willing and able to change. I as a leader, I must be willing to adapt to constantly changing circumstances. For me, as a leader, I must be prepared and able to adapt to the changes that I would encounter on my daily basis. I believe, to understand what adaptive leadership is, it is very imperative that we understand the characteristics and attributes of adaptive leaders. I believe an essential attribute an adaptive leader is a self-awareness.
I believe through experience and relationships, I will become a better NCO and can lead by example. By having goals and striving to do better, your subordinates and people around you will aspire to be like you and take notice of your achievements. This is what makes a great leader. My personal leadership philosophy incorporates all of these values and experiences. The Army values are the core to my leadership principles which are shaped with my own personal experiences and goals.
It’s a decision making process that allows all levels of leadership to apply their input to come up with a plan or order that guides the force to carry out the mission with proper preparation and execution (Odierno, 2012). It allows adjacent, parallel, subordinate, and supporting units a chance to collaborate to come up with unified, thoroughly developed plans of action that are well thought out. The military decision making process isn’t just a “knee jerk” reaction that could lead to disastrous outcomes. It is made up of plenty of steps that involve plenty of input and output, making for great back and forth action to come up with the best possible plan of action when a final decision is
Naval and Marine Corps officers are pillars of strength, for those they lead and our nation. I have nothing but respect for them and believe they will be stronger leaders because of situations and shared experiences, like these scenarios, encountered here at the Naval
