Chief Petty Officers owe to their organizations a sound understanding of leadership. Senior Enlisted Leaders (SEL’s) are retained in the military primarily to serve as leaders who effectively maximize the efforts of others so the Navy and Coast Guard can achieve its goals. Effective leaders in the chief’s mess set the tone and are visible amongst the command while constantly leading by example. This paper will explain the author’s leadership philosophy, refer to several influential leaders throughout his career, and incorporate three leadership behaviors from the Leadership Practices Inventory (LPI) feedback.
The essay Be Specific by Natalie Goldberg was an essay thats main point to me was respect. Respect is something that every individual deserves. A synopsis of what respect means to me all leads back to the golden rule, treat others as you want to be treated. The example that Natalie used that was the most realistic to me was when she said "Hey, girl, get in line.". Many people in today 's world do not take the time to use names it is always hey you, dude, bro, girl, and so the list goes on; as a result our generation is known for being disrespectful in regards to previous years. Although, in today 's society disrespect is more common that is not the case for everyone. Respect is something that people have or they do not; it is mainly taught
“Treat others the way you want to be treated.” We’ve all heard that overused phrase growing up. The same goes for me as well, and to me, respect has been a huge part of my culture and many other Asian cultures. Respect is the root of what makes people who they are today. It shows that you admire them, that you care for them, or possibly even fear them. For example, in The Odyssey, Odysseus and many others show their respect to the gods. After escaping from the Cyclops's cave, Odysseus divided up the stolen sheep, but he slaughtered the old ram in Zeus's honor to appease him. Zeus’ lightning descends and…,k,mlkmlkmlk
Sometimes people use the word respect to mean treating someone like a human and sometimes respect is used to mean treating someone like an authority. Sometimes people who are used to being treated like an authority say “If you will not respect me, I won’t respect you” which really means “If you will not treat me with authority I won’t treat you like a human.” There is something about power which causes a person to demean and shame the people they are in charge of. This shaming of others is said to happen in every branch of military around the world. Once a man of any nationality gets a taste of authority he is permanently altered. In the book All Quiet on the Western Front the protagonist, Paul, has to deal with a particularly cruel Commander who constantly demeans his soldiers, “It's simply that the company commander's head has been turned by having so much power...He can only do that in the
Being a junior Marine who just got to the fleet about 4 months ago, I’ve really started to realize how big and how diverse leadership can be. When I studied leadership styles while doing Leading Marines, they explain the three main leadership styles that one can be. Authoritarian leaders are clear on their expectations and extremely strict about making sure the mission gets accomplished. They are independent and make decisions without little to no input from anyone else. Then there is the complete opposite, Delegative leaders. Some may say this is the least productive form of leadership. They don’t offer any type of guidance and the group members will be the ones making all the decisions. There is often a lack of motivation in the group and no clear defined role. The last form of leadership is the Participative or Democratic leadership. These types of leaders are usually the most effective because not only do they offer guidance, they also allow and encourage participation from the members. After they have heard all the different inputs and opinions from the
As I embark on the newest chapter in my life it occurs to me that I must first take time to fully process and appreciate the magnitude of what it really is to be a Warrant Officer in the United States Army. From my own perspective as well as the perspective seen from society I can see my new responsibilities will hold a paramount position in many different aspects. This being said, I can look forward to a major shift in what my focus will be and how my decisions will directly impact those around me.
Respect is a big part of our lives still. Although the presence of many of the virtuous Native American values is very meager today, this one still exists as a miniscule glimmer across our lives. One must have respect for others to first have respect for themselves. You make a choice of how people will see you: as a incorrigible person, or as a respectful person. People will usually treat you accordingly.
When you show respect, it shows that you were raised properly. Showing respect is an undoubtedly basic law of life. You should give special respect to your elders, teachers, parents, and people who are especially trying to help you, in any way. When you are in
“Military ranks are a system of hierarchical relationships in armed forces, police, intelligence agencies or other institutions organized along military lines. Military ranks and the military rank system define among others dominance, authority, as well as roles and responsibility in a military hierarchy. The military rank system incorporates the principles of exercising power and authority, and the military chain of command – the succession of commanders superior to subordinates through which command is exercised – constructs an important component for organized collective action.”
The Seven Values are Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity, and Personal Courage. The Army Values are important and guide soldiers and leaders to do what is right on a day to day basis within their career. The Army Values are known as the foundation of the army.

These Seven Core Army Values are what make a Soldier, they are a part of what separates us from other organizations. The Army Values are definitely needed to be a good, successful soldier.

"Respect", a seven letter word that means nothing in today's society. Respect is a word that you don’t quite often hear. But in some cultures, they show respect to people. Many different cultures have different definitions and gestures for the word, “Respect”. For instance, it is disrespectful to not use polite language when speaking in Japanese with someone who is high class. In China it is rude to call someone by their first name unless you have known them for a long time. In parts of India, it is traditional that, out of respect, when a person's foot accidentally touches any written material or a person's leg, it should be followed by an apology in the form of a single hand signal with the right hand, where the offending person first touches the object with his/her fingertips, forehead, or chest.
What is respect? We may be aware of the role of respect in our daily lives; after all, it is the foundation of our social and mental lives. However, a majority of us do not know the true meaning of the word. According to the dictionary, respect is to “have due regard for the feelings, wishes, rights, or traditions” of a person. Does this mean that we owe everyone a certain amount of respect? In the past, respect was considered to be something that needed to be earned. However, respect is actually something that we owe to everyone.
Do you know the importance of having a hierarchy structure within any given work space? Without structure there would be no clear line of communication between workers. Having a structure in a workplace establishes communication skills, defuses conflicts, and also provides awareness of leaders who are in charge of you. The most fundamental and important organizational concept used by military is the chain of command. Chain of Command can be defined as the succession of commanders superior to subordinates. Soldiers should utilize their Chain of Command to work through any given situation when a leader cannot solve the situation at hand.
Do you have an idol or someone that you look up to? If so, you most likely look up to that person because you respect him or her. You may respect them for their qualities or admire their numerous achievements. I believe respect has a different meaning to each person based upon how they look up to someone. I feel that respect is a feeling of admiration and passion for someone because of their qualities. Respect can be for your idol, parents, or teachers. I respect my parents because of all the restless work they put into being parents. I try to do this by listening and saying nice things to them. You may even respect many people without even realizing it. The feeling of disrespect for someone can not only hurt them but their relationship. Therefore,
