As it was mentioned before, lost gear and not having full accountability can have minor or severe consequences. It’s important for each Marine to train with all their gear, so when they are in country, they know how to properly use everything they were issued. If a Marine is missing something during training, then it’s possible that he/she didn’t receive complete training due to their lack of gear retention. If that Marine didn’t properly train then his peers and fellow Marines will have to pick up the slack for him/her which
It can have a very costly outcome The first lesson of leadership is learning how to follow orders. That is also providing that the leader you are following knows what they are doing, and in the military, that can be a tricky question. If you do not learn how to follow orders, you will never be trusted to give them. It's something called character-based leadership. It is also taught at all of our military academies (i.e.
The second lesson was that a leader needs to be seen as someone who is thriving under a difficult circumstance. This will inspire Soldiers to do their best because they will push themselves if they see you doing the same. As I said, easy lessons, but they need reinforcement. 3. Platoon Leader: A Memoir of Command in Combat by James R. McDonough Corey James: There are other books out there that pertain to our current operational environment, but not many that cover leadership like Platoon Leader.
In order to prevent infection, and injury it may be necessary for the worker to wear personal protective clothing (ppc). It is vital to always adhere to standard precautions and procedures which will have been explained in training sessions. This protects the worker from claims of incompetence and also addresses the issue of vicarious liability. Although the learner will develop experience and some knowledge s/he can not advise on medication or deal with all queries about the efficacy of the medication. Any queries s/he has doubts about or have not been covered in training must be passed on to the lead practitioner.
Extended Diploma in Uniformed Public Services – Assignment 1 Unit 13: Command and Control in the Uniformed Public Services Command and control in the Uniformed Public Services is critical to maintain the way things operate. It can be dangerous without command and control, because no one would be prepared or not know how to act when an incident occurs. Commanders have a lot of responsibility keeping their teams performing efficiently and safely, as well as displaying qualities and skills needed to be in a position of giving tasks to their teams. In this assignment, I will be going over rank structure, chain of command, skills and personal qualities for command and control and how someone can utilize command and control. Task 1.1 P1 All of the public services have a rank structure which takes the form of a hierarchical system.
It is too easy to assume that they are just not capable of performing any better. Usually it would mean that they are demotivated so you then need to look at why they might be feeling demotivated and what you can do to help to rectify this. The appraisal process should be used to get the employees point of view and discuss what each party could do to re motivate them and get an improved performance from them. These could include more training, improved working conditions or possibly solving employee disputes etc. You obviously cannot just give in to all demands an employee might make however and you have to discuss options in depth and try and find suitable outcomes to benefit both parties.
Going out on any mission in the military without necessary equipment is dangerous. A soldier can not be ready to engage the enemy without his/her necessary equipment near and ready. Also when you know where your weapons, headsets, and other equipment are you are providing a good example to other soldiers on how to always keep track of important items. Keeping track of important items is part of a soldier’s many duties. Accountability in the Army is very important.
This caused a ripple effect in the army as we promoted inexperienced Soldiers to Sergeant, these leaders were now training new Soldiers, this led to Soldiers not getting the proper leadership and not conducting inspections and other basic soldiering skills like haircuts, cleanliness & serviceability of the uniform and ensuring that good basic discipline was being upheld at all levels. As long as the combat mission was completed many times the leaders weren’t worried about how it got
Maintain a good appearance is essential for all members of the armed forces, especially for the U.S. NAVY. It looks simple, and we should always be able to carry out this mission, no matter what. Not having just a simple thing like a belt makes us look uneven. By the simple fact of having forgotten belt, we could also forget send a message instead, and for not sending a message we could end up losing the lives of our shipmates, or even worse, lose the war. Having a uniform ready at all times will teach us discipline.
While I agree with General Dempsey’s view on how to form the Army into a “Profession of Arms,” I don’t think today’s Army is quite there yet. I think The Army is going in the right direction but it will take time to change the culture. We need to understand that it is virtually impossible for all Soldiers to be professionals based on experience and expertise alone. We need to understand that not all Soldiers join today for honor, tradition, and/or wanting to be a part of a team. Soldiers are joining the military more and more to have a secure job with benefits for themselves and their family members.
