    “Leadership is about service…the whole purpose of a leader’s training is to allow him/her to take care of the team.”

    Barracks ApplicationDo we enforce or do we embrace standards?

    Do we clearly state the purpose for every activity?

    For example, a leader might say about the Commandant’s Inspection, “this is about our company demonstrating our discipline, our teamwork, and that we’re willing to put in the right level of effort to ‘show off’ our home to the Commandant.”

    Barracks ApplicationDo we enforce or do we embrace standards?

    Do we see opportunity to improve the unit or enhance the reputation of the unit in every activity?

    For example, a leader might say about the CPFT, “Excellence is our standard, which means giving it our personal best in the PT test. Our #1 goal, though, is everyone passes. Motivate each other as we knock out push-ups and sit-ups. When you finish the run, our standard is to go back and find a company mate and get’em across the finish line.”

    Barracks application do we enforce or do we embrace standards2

    Barracks ApplicationDo we enforce or do we embrace standards?

    Do we affirm our standards in every activity? For example, a leader might say to the guard, “thanks for being squared away…I notice, and you are setting the tone for the whole battalion.”

    Do we emphasize unit pride? For example, for Field Day, a leader might have said, “This is about company pride & camaraderie, and it’s about winning. Even when we’re not competing, we’re going to stay together as a company… and we’re going to win.”
