3To provide the Soldiers in 1RC my philosophy… PURPOSETo provide the Soldiers in 1RCmy philosophy…Here is an outline of the brief.
4LEADERSHIP PHILOSOPHY Do what is legally and morally right. If I ask you to do something and you know it is wrong, TELL ME !!!!Do your best everydayLeave it better than you found itTreat others as you want to be treated with dignity and respectProfanity is incompatible with good leadershipTimely response to all issues and concerns4
5GUIDING PRINCIPLES Tell the truth, you will explain less later Do not reinvent. If the Army has a system that works, use itKeep the leadership informed, bad news does not get better with age, I want to know immediatelyIf there are problems in 1RC I want to knowIf you are involved in an accident, hospitalization, misconduct I need to know immediatelyOpen door Policy: Attempt to resolve the problem at the lowest level. I am available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. If you need me bad, contactDon’t go straight to the commander, Use your chain of command5
6GUIDING PRINCIPLES If you don’t know the answer, don’t shoot from the hip (research it)Integrity is non-negotiableMilitary correspondence completed IAW AR 25-50, run spell check, check your grammar and logic. I actually read and understand documents before I sign them. If I do not understand an issue I will ask for an explanationYou may understand the issue, but I need to. If I am going to make a decision I need all the factsKnowledge is power – so share it.Seek excellence in whatever you doCommunication6
7GUIDING PRINCIPLESThe most important resource the Army has is you, the individual Soldier, if you have health issues get the treatment you need1RC is a team effort, respect each other, get over minor issues, learn from each otherArmy values, standards, regulations and policies are non-negotiable. Army values are more than a wall poster or plastic tagAdmit mistakes – smile – correct and move onHonest mistakes are underwritten, some mistakes are unrecoverableDisagreement is not disrespect – once decision is made support it7
