In the article “How to Give Orders like a Man” Deborah Tanner discusses the pros and cons associated with indirect versus direct communication. To communicate effectively, ideas must be portrayed clearly and concisely to ensure that tasks are completed properly and in a timely manner. While direct instruction will give the subordinate a clear understanding of the task, indirect communication will foster mutual respect and understanding between the subordinate and the superior. However, being fluent in both of these techniques will reap the most benefit and allow for the most efficient form of communication to take place.

In order to accomplish missions and tasks successfully, teams must be cohesive and unified, as well as meet and exceed the standard. In order to build teams, leaders must develop teams through three stages, formation, enrichment, and sustainment. The first stage, formation, is the stage in which the initial team is built and comes together for the first time. The second stage, enrichment, is the stage in which team members gradually grain trust in themselves, followed by their peers, followed by their leaders. The final stage, sustainment, is where teams are fully invested in their teams, and are proud of their group. Sustainment is the stage in which all leaders strive to have their teams identify with, as it ties in leadership to a

Communication is the process of understanding and sharing information. It is a 2 way process that involves sending messages (verbally and non-verbally) and receiving them (listening).

Leadership in the Army is the fundamental foundation of the organization. Leaders like Officers and Non- Commission Officers implement and set the standard of leader to soldiers. These leaders ensure the Army soldiers are trained and prepare for any hardships they face. The term Leadership can be defined differently based on the organization in which the term is applied to. In the Army Leadership can be described as a "characterized by a complex mix of organizational, situational, and mission demands on a leader who applies personal qualities, abilities, and experiences to exert influence on the organization, its people, the situation, and the unfolding mission" (ADP 6-22). This simply means an army leader is an individual who applies and lives
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. When a soldier and leader applies integrity into their day to day operation, they trust each other to do the right thing at all times. Honor plays also plays a major part in a soldier’s and leader’s work environment as well, that is just living up to the Army Values. Once they develop that habit they’re showing that they are honorable. An individual shows selfless service simply by put others before yourself. This is the mindset one must have especially on the battle field, because in that situation you are not fighting for yourself, you are fighting for the man or woman to the left or right of you so that they can make it home to their loved ones. These are just a few of the army values and how they play an important part in an effective leader and follower’s day to day
If there is no “I” in the word team, then what makes up a team? A group of individuals becomes a team when they all aim to a similar outcome, but without each other a desired outcome will not occur. In basketball, a game without a team will not be won. Successful players all contain certain traits that help them to achieve more than someone who lacks them. Without communication, cooperation, and a purpose, failure will happen before even stepping on the court.
