Looking back at the first assignment, as a group, we did not know what was expected from each other, nor did we know how helpful the course really is. Thankfully, all that changed after that first assignment. Leadership has played an important role in the completion of our first assignment; it was not the predictable and usual type of leadership. There was no member of the groupwho emerged as a sole leader, but we as a group shared and took control of the leadership that was needed to complete our task. Each member had the chance to voice their opinions, and from there individually we would nominate ourselves for the task we would be in charge of for completing the essay. Our group’s strongest attribute was that we were very organized; this led to better performance anddevelopment. Our group was very punctual, as there was never a situation where a group member was late for a meeting, or did not complete their portion of the assignment on time, which was why performance was very high and effective. Even though we were not familiar with each other from the beginning, we still managed to work together without much conflict. The one argument we had was on thetopic of whether a manager was the same as a leader. We did resolve the conflict which made our group more comfortable with each other. Overall our first group assignment together was a success; we learned how to share the leadership with each other, we learned that performance and development is a big factor in team roles, and learned that conflict is not always a bad thing.
Shared leadership “doesnot depend on one person, but on how people act together to make sense of the situations that face them” (Doyle and Smith, 2001). In order to achieve an effective leadership and an effectual assignment a shared leadership needed to be present. Some ways shared leadership was present was through the editing process, topic distribution and assessment of assignment responsibly. The primary componentneeded before the...

Honor is defined as an evaluation of one's trustworthiness and social status based on that individual's espousals and actions. This means, a person that is seen as honorable, is also seen as being Loyal, Respectful, Dutiful, Selfless, Integritous, and Courageous, thus embodying all of the Army's core values. An honorable person embodiesthe Warrior Ethos, and always places the mission first, never accepts defeat, never quits, and never leaves a fallen comrade. All that makes a soldier and a warrior an NCO, makes a person honorable.
One's honor drives him to be the best possible person, soldier and leader. By displaying honorable traits, ones subordinates, peers and superiors can look to him to be the shining beacon ofmorality in any situation. Subordinates are more inclined to obey the commands of an honorable leader than those of one who is morally questionable. Peers and ones superiors are also more inclined to listen to and implement the suggestions of one who is honorable because they know those suggestions are in the best interest of the greater good.
Honor is often seen as subjective, changing from oneperson to the next. However true that may be, one thing remains unchanged; Honor is seen as the pedestal on which morality stands. It is the uplifting force and the immoveable rock that pushes the great to success. It is the reason a warrior fights. It is what makes Noncommissioned Officers professionals, and professional leaders. Honor is defined as an evaluation of ones trustworthiness and is whatmakes a warrior a soldier.
The One Minute Manager is not only the title of the book but also the character whose management style is put under close scrutiny. The One Minute Manager is more of a Zen-master than an office manager, dishing out seemingly cryptic management maxim after another. The One Minute Manager is a proverbial wiseman cut in the mold of Mahatma Gandhi, Obi-wan-Kenobi and...
