Leaders must apply the Army Values when leading soldiers because of the fact that it builds trust and a bond. The same goes for the soldiers, in order for them both to work as an effective team and to get the mission done efficiently they both must live by these values. Once these values are integrated in a soldier’s lifestyle, it becomes too easy to work as a unit. An example on how loyalty and respect fits in a day to day to situation would be, a soldier witnessing a misunderstanding with his or her team leader and a higher ranking NCO, the soldier knows that his or her team leader is in the right. The soldier shows loyalty by standing by their team leader and shows respect by approaching both their team leader and the higher ranking NCO with tact to explain the situation from their understanding and what they witnessed.
Arlington Cemetery is a very beautiful place with a very tragic purpose. It would be nice to think that everyone who served our country got to live happily ever after, but sadly that is not the case. There are many soldiers who make the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives to protect our country. I feel that it is the saddest when the soldiers aren 't able to be identified and sent home to be buried. The soldiers who were unidentifiable they still mean something to someone.
Also my reputation of taking a risk to change things helped me to be successful. Instead of sticking with what people thought was the norm, I invited the challenge of doing thing differently. The approach that I took in improving the way in which things were done became the standard for the entire organization. My ideas were proved to be more detailed and effective when it came to training and administrative procedures. As a leader, I believed that the most important thing to a Soldier was their time.
So what is the Importance of HR Sergeants in the Profession of Arms? We are one of, if not the most relied on Profession in all of the Army. We are one of the few Professions that our client is the Soldiers themselves. We provide a service of cultural adaptability, meaning, if there is a new training that deals with personal relationships, we will get that training, and become trainers. We have to take pride in the fact we’re the Profession Soldiers can count on, versus become upset that they need us.
To me veterans need to be honored every day for their service. To me veteran is a person who risked their life so I could live in a better country. Throughout America’s history, we have depended on our soldiers to keep us safe and fight for our country while at the same time fighting for their families and their lives. Without veterans we couldn't enjoy the little things that we do now, we wouldn't be free. They fought for the people who couldn't fight for themselves.
They should also respect their fellow soldiers and those of higher ranks. Their duties include having to go onto the battlefield, where it involves bloody scenes and requires a strong mentality. They have to have the courage to go on even if it seems tough and scary because that is what they are trained for. In the end, the most important thing that they have to protect is the wellbeing and security of the country. In the post deployment phase, service members, or soldiers return to their home installation and prepare to go back to their normal lives.
The Army knows how important communication is, we just can 't have people running around doing their own thing. Accountability and the proper use of the chain of command is how we will meet this goal as one. The AAR is important to me because it allows everyone to give feedback. It is the higher rankings jobs to look for ways to improve everything we do, the AAR is constructive criticism but along with constructive criticism should come positive feedback too. Having good communication skills is not only important in the work place, communication skills plays a huge role in life.
Leadership Qualities and Styles of Leadership George Washington, one of our nation's greatest leaders is now revered as a tactical genius and a literal textbook example for qualities in leadership, has historically been severely underestimated, simply because of the many battles he lost. However, he had a talent for turning small losses into net gains. Upon closer inspecting the history, it becomes clear that Washington constantly worked to refine his strategic knowledge against his opponents, always finding ways to relevantly apply new information he gathered (especially from his losses). With "extraordinary stamina", he tirelessly pushed forward and, despite countless setbacks during the American Revolution, managed to claim victory. It was Washington's fierce ethical and moral values/qualities coupled with his natural ability to lead that makes him stand out as a maverick amongst military leaders (Harvey, 2008).
I chose Servant Leadership for my discussion topic as it was my chosen style of leadership during my military career and the one I extend into my civilian career. I feel it is important to be a servant to your followers (staff) as they are the ones who truly carry out the tasks which accomplish the goals of your organization. Without truly understanding where your staff is mentally, sharing work and hardship with them and allowing them to see you have their best interests at heart; you will not have engaged followers (Farmer, 2010). To be an effective leader in today’s workplace, it is important to accomplish your organization’s goals on time and on budget. To do these things require effective communication through a servant leader’s actions
Not committing to the task could potentially suggest that they were incompetent or lack the capacity as a military personnel so facing ‘dangers’ was a much preferred option. Additionally, discipline in the military can be seen when an officer makes his salutes appropriately, their conduct, to the state of their uniform and even how they present themselves in public. While discipline in military is rewarded as it is a sign of respect and duty, misconduct on the other hand is punishable. When discipline is lacking in an army personnel, it not only affects their own performance but also the team as a whole. It is therefore important to instil discipline early and effectively.
