In a broader sense, the Warrior Ethos is a way of life that applies to our personal and professional lives as well. It defines who we are and who we aspire to become. https://www.army.mil/values/warrior.html My leadership philosophy is based on a set of values that I try to model and expect others to aspire to and attain. While I have never been in a supervisory position, I believe leaders often stand in front but rather leads from within and true leadership transcends any position on an organizational chart. Above all, I believe that the two most important assets of a leader are sound vision and impenetrable integrity.
I am kind, caring, non-judgmental and open-minded. It’s important to have these characteristics in order to empathize with your clients. I will encounter a variety of situations that will required me to be open-minded to understand. You can’t exhibit any signs of judgmental thoughts when you’re working with clients. Just because sometimes you might not agree with a person decision, doesn’t entitle you to treat them poorly.
On 26th of Dec 2001, I joined the Army and was shipped to BCT (basic combat training) the following January. I spent nine weeks in BCT and went through the soldering process at Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. After that, I stayed an additional 6 weeks to specialize in my MOS. Once I graduated the last part of training, I arrived at my unit located in Lakeland, FL and was received by a squad leader and the platoon sergeant. They took me under their care and taught me the ropes.
I have always tried to instill this type of leadership in my soldiers, having the courage to go against the grain when you believe in something. I have always tried to have this type of courage and hope that in my little corner of the world I have left some sort of legacy with those people that I have influenced. Everybody wants to leave some sort of legacy whether it be for their family or the soldiers that they lead throughout their career. All of us will not discover America, but we can attempt to emulate some of the qualities that leaders such as Christopher Columbus displayed and apply these to our lives. Columbus like many that have gone before us are examples of the Character, Presence, and Intellect ADP 6-22 (2012), that we should all strive for and will more times than not strengthen your leadership qualities.
Added to the supervision and oversight of their daily duties, I as a leader am there to help, guide and give that listening ear when needed in whatever capacity. Ensuring that they are aware of all the military and or personal options, and opportunities that are available to them are taken advantage of. Progressing in their careers and a clear path for their future is another aspect of my leadership philosophy that I hold first and foremost. No junior soldier that has passed through my path, whether they have been assigned to me or just work under the same command/unit has not gotten the three infamous questions that I have come to ask throughout my career: 1. What are your goals in life?
The next series of pivotal experiences came to me by way of volunteer work as a Marine Security Guard in Valletta, Malta and Seoul, South Korea. In both instances I had the opportunity to answer questions about my personal experiences and share American culture. Although, crucial these experiences where significantly amplified by my concurrent professional experiences. Like my personal experience my professional played a significant role in motivating me to join the Foreign Service. When I turned 19, I had already been in Iraq for 4 months serving as a Security Scout Gunner in Al Anbar Province, Iraq.
It consists of basic training and serve for two to three years maximum. Countries depend on their soldiers to protect and defend them, and that is the reason why various countries have compulsory service, such democratic nations as Germany, Austria, Brazil, Denmark, Finland, Israel, and Turkey. Most people maintain that serving the community should be voluntary, and each individual has the absolute freedom to join or not to join the military service. However, it is argued that military service builds
There are many reason why I have chosen to work on the topic of our military throughout the last few weeks. The main reason is because I am now a member of our military and I want to be best informed on the issues in which i will be partaking in. I feel that this has allowed me to educate myself on some issues i never would have known about. Over theses few weeks i have learned about what roles our government has in the military, while also finding some pretty surprising information along the way. I have learned a great deal of information on our military during this project.
Meaning simply that just because of an event, good or bad, in your life occurs you can’t just change who you are. Sure you can try I did, but my worldview kept bringing me back. You can try to change who you are but you can't change your past experiences and emotions. So therefore my worldview changes and I rightfully think it should. My worldview is based off of strong morals and beliefs, but also an understanding of difference.
