13 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Technical Proficiency How would you have felt last year if a corporal or sergeant tried to teach you drill if they couldn’t drill themselves? You probably wouldn’t follow that corporal or sergeant into a coffee shop. There would be no trust. Technical proficiency also fosters trust

All of your actions must be consistent  You may look sharp in uniform and max a PT test but if you spend your weekend drunk and naked passed out on King Street your effectiveness as a leader will be severely diminished.

15 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Duty Duty: “Duty is the most sublime word in the English language. Do your duty in all things....You can never do more, you should never wish to do less.” -attributed to Robert E. Lee.

16 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Duty  It is the duty of every cadet officer and non- commissioned officer to support the authority of his or her superiors (White Book 1-3:a)  Remember…everyone always works for or reports to someone else.  Duty always takes precedence over privileges.

17 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Discussion What does it mean that Duty always takes precedence over privileges?

18 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Duty and Privileges Most extra privileges that are associated with rank are granted to give the rank holder more “flexibility” to accomplish his or her duties.

24 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Knowing One’s Subordinates To fully develop your subordinates into the cadets they should be, you need to know them. This means knowing: 1) Strengths and areas for improvement 2) What Motivates them 3) Factors that may inhibit performance 4) Their Health and Welfare

25 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Knowing One’s Subordinates There is a difference between knowing your subordinates and fraternization Fraternization is to associate or mingle as brothers or on fraternal terms.fraternal -It includes a disregard for rank -It subverts the chain of command -It undermines good order and discipline

26 CADET LEADER DEVELOPMENT TRAINING (CLDT) SY Professionalism Summarized True professionalism creates a positive environment. –Positive is not synonymous with “weak” Positive motivates, strengthens, and emboldens. Positive creates the “can do” attitude that even the most difficult mission can be accomplished. Let your unit’s self-fulfilling prophecy be positive not negative.
