JLBC: Leadership

JLBC: Leadership

JLBC Cadets Depending on the situation, you may want to use all three styles or different styles:

• With different followers or in different situations

• When you receive a new project or new personnel or when your supervisor changes

• When and if your team's competence, motivation, or commitment changes

As you progress through the JLBC program, you will be asked to take a leadership role in the JLBC Leadership command, where you can practice directing, coaching, supporting, and delegating functions with new Cadets. You will also be involved in community service projects to practice leadership styles. These assignments will be based on your performance and developmental level.

By your second year in JLBC, you are very competent at drill. However, you have yet to be a drill leader. You will be energetic and motivated because you know how to drill. The task of leading others in the drill is new, and you will need your instructor's direction to build your competence and commitment through the process.

As you gain experience with leadership styles, your instructor will begin to coach, support, and delegate the leadership role to you.

In a leadership position, you'll assess your team's

ability to perform its mission and then develop a

plan to accomplish it. It would help if you used the style

your experience tells you is most appropriate after assessing the team's level of competence, motivation, and commitment to accomplish its mission.
