JLBC CADET CORPS Leadership Skills & Theories
JLBC Cadets, the five dimensions of leadership, are related characteristics shown that must be developed for a JLBC leader to be effective:
• Purpose - Passion: Leaders understand their own purpose, which is driven by their passion.
• Values - Behavior: JLBC Leaders live their values, which is essential as others determine a JLBC leader's value through the leader's actions (behavior).
• Heart - Compassion: Leaders help others see their work's value and more profound purpose.
• Relationships - Connectedness: JLBC Leaders create enduring and genuine relationships through valuable connections.
• Self-discipline - Consistency: JLBC Leaders convert their core values into consistent actions that other JLBC Cadets can rely on.
To become an authentic leader, you must deeply commit to developing yourself through meaningful and rich experiences, reflection, and informal and formal learning. The goal is to learn and build your actual self rather than become an imitation of another JLBC Cadet. While you can study and learn from other JLBC Cadets, you cannot be them.
