Define Leadership.
Leadership is influencing people—by providing purpose, direction, and motivation—while operating to accomplish the mission and improving the organization.
What is purpose?
Purpose gives people a reason to do things.
What is direction?
When providing direction, you communicate the way you want the mission accomplished.
What is motivation?
Motivation gives subordinates the will to do everything they can to accomplish a mission. It results in their acting on their own initiative when they see something needs to be done.
Describe the "Be, Know and Do".
Army leadership begins with what the leader must BE, the values and attributes that shape a leader’s character. Your skills are those things you KNOW how to do, your competence in everything from the technical side of your job to the people skills a leader requires. But character and knowledge—while absolutely necessary—are not enough. You cannot be effective, you cannot be a leader, until you apply what you know, until you act and DO what you must.
A leader must have a certain level of knowledge to be competent. That knowledge is spread across four skill domains. What are the four skills a leader must have?
Interpersonal - knowledge of your people and how to work with them.
Conceptual - the ability to understand and apply the doctrine and other ideas required to do your job.
Technical - how to use your equipment.
Tactical - the ability to make the right decisions concerning employment of units in combat.
What are the Leader Actions?
1. Influencing – making decisions, communicating those decisions, and motivating people.
2. Operating – the things you do to accomplish your organization’s immediate mission.
3. Improving – the things you do to increase the organization’s capability to accomplish current or future missions.
What are the three levels of leadership?
Direct - Direct leadership is face-to-face, first-line leadership.
Organizational - Organizational leaders influence several hundred to several thousand people. They do this indirectly, generally through more levels of subordinates than do direct leaders.
Strategic - Strategic leaders include military and DA civilian leaders at the major command through Department of Defense levels. Strategic leaders are responsible for large organizations and influence several thousand to hundreds of thousands of people.
What are the Army Values?
Selfless Service
Personal Courage
What are the attributes a leader must have?
Mental - The mental attributes of an Army leader include will, self-discipline, initiative, judgment,self-confidence, intelligence, and culturalawareness.
Physical - Physical attributes include health fitness, physical fitness, and military and professional bearing, all which can be developed. Army leaders maintain the appropriate level of physical fitness and military bearing.
Emotional - As an Army leader, your emotional attributes include self-control, balance, and stability. All contribute to how you feel and therefore to how you interact with others.
Why must leaders introduce stress into training?
Leaders must inject stress into training to prepare soldiers for stress in combat.
What are the different leadership styles?
Directing - The directing style is leader-centered. Leaders using this style don’t solicit input from subordinates and give detailed instructions on how, when, and where they want a task performed. They then supervise its execution very closely.
Participating - The participating style centers on both the leader and the team. Given a mission, leaders ask subordinates for input, information, and recommendations but make the final decision on what to do themselves. This style is especially appropriate for leaders who have time for such consultations or who are dealing with experienced subordinates.
Delegating - The delegating style involves giving subordinates the authority to solve problems and make decisions without clearing them through the leader. Leaders with mature and experienced subordinates or who want to create a learning experience for subordinates often need only to give them authority to make decisions, the necessary resources, and a clear understanding of the mission’s purpose.
Transformational and Transactional - These words of a distinguished military leader capture the distinction between the transformational leadership style, which focuses on inspiration and change, and the transactional leadership style, which focuses on rewards and punishments.
