This means we must communicate clearly and consistently with each other, train together, trust each other, and allow for Soldiers to be human every so often. As leaders, we often forget the challenges we faced as junior professionals, and we also don’t always know what is going on with the commands or Soldiers we support that may be making mission accomplishment challenging. The culture we instill within our Human Resources operations can either contribute to a climate of teamwork and taking care of Soldiers, or it can contribute to toxic leadership. It is up to us, as Human Resources Sergeants, to embody the Army Ethic, which consists of “the moral values, principles and martial virtues embedded in its culture that inspire and regulate ethical behavior by both Soldiers and the U.S. Army in the application of land combat in defense of and service to the Nation.” (The Profession of Arms, 2010) We must be the example for and instill confidence in our leadership, our peers, our subordinates, and our customers, the Soldiers.
Proper respect will bring pride in Soldiers which in turn strengthen the organization. 7). Micro Management In my Army life so far I had lots of good and bad leaders. I have always respected leaders who let us have control over our small section and held us accountable for it.
Leadership Philosophy 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.

The 4th Armored Brigade Combat Team Without knowledgeable and qualified leaders at every level of civilian or military organization people will work in an unhealthy environment and their output and performance will suffer. Management or leadership lacking in leadership qualities will effect organizational culture and climate in a negative way, to the point that it will make the unit organization incapable of accomplishing the assigned mission. After a series of tragic events that occurred within the 4th ABCT during their last deployment in Afghanistan, I have no doubt in my mind that commanding them is going to be challenging. During the last few weeks, I had the opportunity to examine the historical unit records, CALL and CAL assessments, and conversations and observations with leaders throughout the Brigade and Division, which gave me some helpful information. This information has helped me in preparing the plan on how to meet with the upcoming challenge.
We all grew up different, from our race, culture, gender, and nationality. As a leader, we need to know our Marines and understand how to come across the most effective well still maintaining that respect between a junior and senior marine and just as basic respect towards one
Among these five characteristics; military expertise, honorable service, trust, esprit de corps, and stewardship of the profession, I believe that military expertise and stewardship of the profession are the two characteristics that make a leader excel in the presence of their peers. ADRP 1 defines military expertise as, “Military expertise is the design, generation, support, and ethical application of land power, primarily in unified land operations, and all supporting capabilities essential to accomplish the mission in defense of the American people”. In order to gain trust from your subordinates for them to follow your guidance, a leader must have military expertise. Without being an expert in your field, subordinates will not trust your guidance provided unto them. ADRP 1 defines Stewardship of the Profession as, “Stewardship is the responsibility of Army professionals to ensure the profession maintains its five essential characteristics now and into the future”.
That is the wrong answer. Leaders should feel obligated to be the prime example and enforce the Army Values and Warrior Ethos not only thru their action on duty but also off duty. For example cutting edge to get the job done quicker is the wrong answer, it show that you don’t live the army values. It show that you have loyalty to you task, respect to the leader that told you complete the task, and the personal courage to do the right thing when no one is looking. Not only should a leader live the army values and warrior ethos while on duty but a leader should live them off duty.

Rowan is willing to take on responsibilities and see them through to the end; He is the type of person who doesn't need someone to look over their shoulders to keep them on track; a person with a strong work ethic; a person who can get the job done, done right, and right on time. All of these are strong leadership qualities. In our very own Marine Corps, all Marines should in fact embody some, if not all, of these traits. The will to continue even when others will not.
Over my twenty-year career, the core aspects of my leadership philosophy have been constant while other parts evolved with me, as I changed jobs and responsibilities and while I matured and gained new perspectives. Mahatma Gandhi said it best, “You have to be the change that you want to see in the world.” In keeping with the military’s practice of conducting after action reviews after military exercises, I hope my written leadership philosophy will become a contract to keep me in check and ensure I “walked the talk.”
Military leadership is the process of influencing others to accomplish the mission by providing purpose, direction, and motivation. Another significant aspect of emphasized by the army is charisma. Therefore, army strategy to have a great leader is to choose people with high charisma since follower are always drawn to leaders with charisma.
