When I went on mobilization to Fort Lewis, Washington and left my son in the care of my parents, I thought my parental duties would be set aside until I returned home. Unfortunately, the soldiers of 351st Ordnance Company would prove me wrong with their excessive alcohol consumption, commonly
I have learned that the army is all about making the right choices and doing the right thing so if anything makes sure that you are always doing what is right. I for one have been late a few times and now I have to make sure that I take care of that so that I can keep my rank and not lose anything. The right thing for me to do is I will make sure that I have an alarm clock set for the time I need to be up and to better myself to get up as soon as it goes off. Then I will make sure that I am getting a good amount of sleep so that I can get up on time and not be late or dragging while I am at work. I have done so well I just need to be more attentive in what I am doing and make sure that I have my things in order and that I am prepared for everything that comes my way. It’s time to set aside the differences have against me and be a leader by example if people see me showing up whenever they will do the same thing. So now I have to make sure that I lead by example and not by sub standards because in the long wrong I will be in charge of soldiers and don’t want them to think that they can just show up whenever or talk to NCO’S any way they want. Which brings me to my last part respect in order for soldiers to want to respect anybody you have to show that you are contributing to the work that is going and not just sitting there
In their infancy, my problem solving skills were limited to seeking out guidance and having others assist with resolving conflict. As a young sergeant, I remember allowing conflict to brew around me instead of confronting issues. This served no purpose, and caused the work environment and team morale to decline. During my three years at United States Central Command (USCENTCOM), I had multiple analytic and leadership disagreements with colleagues. I learned that through open discussion and communication a majority of conflicts could be resolved immediately. As a platoon sergeant, I handle conflict between soldiers, peers, and leadership regularly. I employ tact, patience, and understanding in order to help the involved parties to overcome their
For as long as I can remember, I feel as though I have been raised in a military environment. At a very young age my parents taught me to value discipline, manners, and to show and treat people with respect. In addition to these ‘staples’ of my upbringing, excelling in academics and on the athletic fields was where I further grew as a leader and learned to work with others to further distinguish myself from my peers. I knew based on my priorities and values that I was different from others by not only the way I carried myself but how I spoke to my peers and elders and the respect that I commanded. Perhaps those values were aided by both my grandfather’s serving in the military and my uncle attending West Point, a graduate of the class of
Sergeant First Class (SFC) Boozer, Charles “The Legacy Leader” The purpose of this paper is to describe why SFC Boozer, Charles is who I consider my Legacy Leader and how he positively impacted not only myself, but the Army and NCO Corps which directly influenced the Leader that I am today. The Attributes and Competencies that he instilled in me as Leader are just a few of the many things that I would like to become part of my Legacy that I would like to leave behind the Army and NCO Corps.
1st platoon did the exact opposite, with leaders publicly ridiculing and berating their subordinates in front of other soldiers. The diminishing unit cohesion led to a lack of respect between subordinates and superiors. Due to the overwhelming amount of disrespect within the unit, no clear and concise standards were ever set in regards to professionalism between subordinates and superiors. The subordinates were blatantly disrespectful, mouthed off, undisciplined, and did not swiftly follow lawful commands set before them. The leaders lacked communication, direction and were unable to set any boundaries between their subordinates. This led to inappropriate friendships, which in turn led to many undesirable behaviors being ignored.
The purpose of this document is to explain how Sargent First Class (SFC) Kietsayam Krueree is my leader of influence and directly impacts the legacy I want to leave as a soldier. He was the first individual I met in the Army who mentored me and displayed leadership core
Officers of my unit will have maximum time to accomplish their duties; they will not have to accomplish mine. I will earn their respect and confidence as well as that of my soldiers. I will be loyal to those with whom I serve; seniors, peers, and subordinates alike. I will exercise initiative by taking appropriate action in the absence of orders. I will not compromise my integrity, nor my moral courage. I will not forget, nor will I allow my comrades to forget that we are professionals, Noncommissioned Officers, leaders!
One of the ways I have learned from the NCO's and Officers appointed over me is to respect my soldiers and to earn respect of my soldiers by leading from the front , setting the example for them and putting the troops first .The privilege of leading soldiers is an honor that one should not take lightly. It is your first priority to become worthy of leading them. Lead by example every day and in everything you do, whether is at physical training, while in field exercises, or on the range and never compromise you integrity.
“A leader is a dealer in hope.” Napoleon Bonaparte’s words rang true to me as I made the decision to become a camp counselor during the summer of 2016. What initially was an opportunity to gain close friends and catch a few rays of sun swiftly became my greatest leadership accomplishment: I was able to provide hope and encouragement to 181 precious girls between the ages of 7 and 12.
I was born in Aquidauana, Brazil, on 23 May 1979. I am only child of a small family of the country of the Mato Grosso do Sul state, in Brazil. My father was a car mechanic, and my mother is a dressmaker. During my childhood, I spent most part of
Leadership Adam Tobias Davenport University- Student Leadership Leadership is summarized as ‘the process in which an individual impacts a variety of individuals to attain a common goal’. The goal is attained by mutual collaboration and cohesive behavior. A leader infuses a sense of positivity and manages others to reach a specified goal. Leadership has
I grew up in a family of Indian railway employees. Along with a railway job my father used to serve in the Territorial Army. I learned from my father about the discipline, leadership, and commitment needed to serve the country. At the age of 12, I joined the Bharat Scouts and Guides to achieve physical, intellectual, social and spiritual potential as an individual. From being a boy scout, I grew up in the ranks over the years to scout leader. During my last year of high school, I became the school captain, planning and leading the school day-to-day student activities. During the same time, as a captain, I lead my school team to a district level cricket championship. I enjoyed my entire school journey learning and building leadership qualities. My urge for community service led me to look for opportunities in and outside of my undergrad college. During my search, I met then Commanding Officer of NCC 2(A) Compo Tech Regiment, a wing of Indian army in Visakhapatnam. After my brief interaction with him, I felt that joining National Cadet Crops (NCC) would further strengthen my leadership skills and give me an opportunity to serve the community. During my stint at NCC, I organized camps for water conservation, blood donation, and tree plantation. The unique training activities that the NCC provided me with in terms of teamwork and leadership have molded me into a disciplined and selfless leader.
As a child, I was the student that helped other students with their projects and homework. I was the one the teacher looked to, and knew I’d be able to speak to my peers in a way that would make sense to them. I became a mentor to those that struggled, and a friend to those that required more than just homework help. As an adult, this feeling and need to help others did not go away, it evolved. No longer am I helping with homework; I am guiding coworkers and becoming the associate my boss relies on. I am becoming a leader; someone for others to look up to and motivate them to do better. Inspiring others to stretch themselves and not give up is something I strive to do every day. By completing my graduate degree in organizational
