The Warrant Officer Program is also affords me a great opportunity to serve as a key member of the detachment leadership. I have served on teams both with and without warrant officers and recognize the importance of this role. The warrant officer is a key source of continuity for the detachment due to the longevity provided to them. This allows them to pass guidance on to new team leadership and minimize disruptions in training during leadership changes. This longevity and continuity is vital to the shaping of the team, developing the long term path, and ensuring mission
The culture around the HR Sergeant can very easily change negatively by having a toxic leader in place. HR Sergeants strive to have the best leadership skills and strive to develop their subordinates to be the best leaders they can be. This ensures the culture will not be negatively impacted due the HR Profession.

According to a survey conducted within the Mobility Warrant Officer Advance Course (MWOAC) class 01-16, over 80% of the personnel believes that Movement Control is broken. (Survey, 2016) There could be many reasons for this belief not only within the MWOAC, but also across the Army. In order to explore this concern, we must know the definition of movement control. “Movement Control is the dual process of committing allocated transportation assets and regulating movement according to command priorities to synchronize the distribution flow over lines of communications to sustain land forces”. (Army, ADRP 4-0 Sustainment, 2012)

The Warrant Officer Branch is like an officer but no degree is required to become a Warrant Officer. Warrant officers are labeled as subject matter experts (SME) in their field. According to Army (2011), "The Army Warrant Officer (WO) is a self–aware and adaptive technical expert, combat leader, trainer, and advisor. Through progressive levels of expertise in assignments, training, and education, the WO administers, manages, maintains, operates, and integrates Army systems and equipment across the full spectrum of Army operations. Warrant officers are competent and confident warriors, innovative integrators of emerging technologies, dynamic teachers, and developers of specialized teams of soldiers. They support a wide range of Army missions throughout their career. Warrant officers in the Army are accessed with specific levels of technical ability. They refine their technical expertise and develop their leadership and management skills through tiered progressive assignments and education” (WO program, para. 1).
