Leadership Philosophy
  • Texas Wing NCOA
  • Spring 2001

2
Objectives
  • Identify and understand NCO roles and
    responsibilities.
  • Understand principles of philosophical
    leadership.
  • Apply Leadership Volume 1 material to situational
    leadership.

3
Leadership
  • Leadership is the art of influencing and
    directing people in a way that will win their
    obedience, confidence, respect, and loyal
    cooperation in achieving a common objective.

4
Non-Commissioned Officer
  • What is a non-commissioned officer and what are
    his responsibilities?

5
Non-Commissioned Officer
  • According to the military, the non-commissioned
    officer is responsible for
  • Focusing on individual training that leads to
    mission capability.
  • Leading individuals and teams.
  • Ensuring that subordinate NCOs and enlisted
    soldiers are prepared to function as effective
    unit member.
  • Concentrating on the standards of performance,
    training, and development of subordinate NCOs
    and enlisted persons.
  • Officers set goals, NCOs achieve them.

6
An NCO is NOT
  • An officer, nor an officer an NCO.
  • Gunny Hartley of Full Metal Jacket
  • Overbearing
  • Abusive
  • Unprofessional or Arrogant

7
NCO/Officer Relationship
  • Communications
  • There is but one chain of command, the NCO
    support channel parallels and reinforces it.
  • NCOs use the channel to pass information, and
    enforce standards of performance, training,
    appearance and conduct.
  • Officers and NCOs at all echelons must
    continually communicate with one another, whether
    through the NCO support channel or through the
    chain of command.

The NCO Support Chain
9
NCO/Officer Relationship
  • Authority
  • Authority is the legitimate power of leaders to
    direct subordinates or to take action within
    their scope of responsibility.
  • Leaders have command authority when they assume
    positions requiring the direction and control of
    other people.
  • NCOs may have command authority under certain
    circumstances.

10
Styles of Leadership
  • Authoritarian
  • Useful for situations involving time limits or
    critical situations.
  • Examples are a flight commander in combat or
    surgeon.
  • Should be used sparingly, otherwise authority is
    based on fear.

11
Styles of Leadership
  • Democratic
  • Used in conjunction with effective listening,
    discussion, and consideration.
  • Useful for allowing equal stake in achieving a
    common goal.

12
Styles of Leadership
  • Laissez-Faire (hands off)
  • Used when your people know their jobs and are
    accomplishing assigned tasks punctually and
    efficiently.
  • Style is permitting to do NOT leaving to do.

13
Leadership Attributes
  • Power
  • Prominence
  • Respect
  • Awareness
  • Direction
  • Structure
  • Preparation for Conflict
  • Consistent results

14
Maslows Hierarchy of Needs
  • Motivation theory states that a person has a list
    of needs that are arranged according to urgency.
  • Those at the bottom of the hierarchy are basic to
    survival, while those at the top are essential to
    life.

15
Needs
  • Physiological- need for water, food, oxygen, etc.
  • Safety- need to feel safe from harm and not be in
    pain
  • Social- need to be loved, worthy and respected.
  • Aesthetic- need for order and balance, to
    appreciate beauty and art
  • Self Actualization- need for self fulfillment.

16
Needs
  • Leaders must provide for needs to accomplish
    their goals in the most effective manner
    possible.
  • Those individuals who fail to achieve certain
    needs will fail to perform to standards.

17
The Social Contract
  • NCOs should be familiar with the idea represented
    by the social contract as an means of authority.
  • In short, those to be governed agree to surrender
    a certain portion of their rights as human beings
    to a form of leadership.
  • In exchange, the responsibility of the leader is
    to guarantee the sanctity of those rights that
    remain.

18
Conclusion
  • NCOs assume responsibility for their followers,
    while accomplishing goals as outlined by their
    officers.
  • NCOs use philosophical principles daily to carry
    out their missions.
  • The NCO is the key to the chain of command.
