Background The following is a case study, consisting of situations encountered while serving as Officer in Charge of a Navy EOD platoon. They occurred during my first tour, so I was not that far removed from the “shoes” of Midshipmen. I believe this case study will be an enlightening experience, and when presented in the correct fashion, extremely informative. I will give detailed scenarios and hit stopping points to spur discussion, and encourage Midshipmen to give me their opinions on how they would handle the situation while projecting ways forward. Midshipmen yearn to know what is going on in the fleet and this is a valuable study that involves many instances they can relate to, including alcohol use and tough leadership challenges.
During the course of my Noncommissioned Officer Academy course I have learned numerous terms, and theories that can assist me in doing my part to make the Air Force better. My vision statement is: Utilizing the correct tone as a team leader to inspire flexibility during conflict, and negotiations to optimize continuous improvement. Over the next 3 to 5 years, I believe that working towards this statement will cause a ripple effect among my airmen, and shape the future leaders of our Air Force. This will enable those I led to be more receptive to create change while maintaining relationships. Additionally, to achieve this goal relies on my ability to apply my vision because this plan will not happen overnight.

In the military we dubbed this “changes to the changes,” there is no such thing as a perfect plan; one must always be prepared and accept adjustments. This same concept goes for teaching in general. As a future teacher, I understand that planning should be used a benchmark of what lies ahead, however one must also be prepared for the unpredictability of the situation and children as well. My beliefs that teacher entering this career must be willing to adjust on a moment's notice to include accepting that their plans may not always go as planned. There needs to be a certain level of comfort with the idea that even
These fields tackle the complex needs our country demands from us in the national and international areans. Every soldier in every cohort goes through periods of institutional training and on the job training covering these fields. The soldier learns up to a certain level in the tradoc environment then is sent to the force to apply what they have learned and gain real life experience. Then, usually at the next promotion level they return to tradoc to receive the next level of required knowledge. Additionaly the Army promotes the idea of being a lifelong learner and encourages the study of fields according to individual preferences to allow a truly broad depth of expertise across our fellow service members.

Currently this development is conducted through Professional Military Education (PME) and leadership courses. The basis for all instruction begins with the Army Values; Loyalty, Duty, Respect, Selfless Service, Honor, Integrity and Personal Courage. These values are integrated into army training as early as day one of Basic Combat Training, and are carried out through all steps of Army training. Although the Army Values are the basis for character building, the challenge has been
The entire military structure is based on the idea of decentralized leadership. This is centered upon the concept of Commanders intent, be it at the company level or from a four star general. The commander defines the overall mission or objective and supplies concepts of accomplishment (or intent), and is then supposed to trust subordinates to take these charges and complete them. The true measure of success of a leader is how well they empower subordinates to accomplish a task. We have all had a superior at some point in our lives give us a task, then look over our shoulder the entire time the assignment was being completed.

State and local governments follow the principles and guidelines developed by the Government Accounting Standards Board (GASB).
