PART ONE: THE BASICS OF LEADERSHIP
CHAPTER 1 FUNDAMENTALS OF LEADERSHIP
CHAPTER 2 ROLES AND LEVELS OF LEADERSHIP
2-12. The Army relies on NCOs capable of conducting daily operations, executing complex tactical operations, and making intent-driven decisions. Soldiers look to their NCOs for solutions, guidance, and inspiration. Soldiers count on leaders they trust and admire. Soldiers can relate to NCOs since NCOs advanced through the junior enlisted ranks. They expect them to convey information and provide day-today guidance to get the job done. To answer the challenges of the operational environment, NCOs must train Soldiers to cope, prepare, and perform regardless of situation. In short, the Army NCO is a leader of strong character, comfortable in every role.
79T TUNE-UP: NG PAM 601-1 CHAPTER 6 SCHOOL PROGRAMS
6-4. Establishing and Maintaining Rapport
Establishing rapport with school officials is a key step in maintaining access to schools. To effectively work the school market, RRNCOs must maintain rapport throughout the school year (SY) and develop a good working relationship with key influencers. Listed below are guidelines that RRNCOs should follow when working with their school market. Apply a measure of flexibility in your approach. School boards (or board of directors) regulate administrative policies and academic standards in school districts; however, the principal is provided a high level of autonomy in his/her school. Structures and organizational climates vary from school to school. RRNCOs should apply a measure of flexibility in tailoring their approach to effectively work within the different schools. As the school administration changes so does the approach in dealing with a particular school. Ask school officials what service and/or assistance you can provide to them or their students
“If I was to be the biggest benefit to you and your students this year, what would that look like?”
5C CONVERSATIONS: CONNECT, COLLECT, CONTRIBUTE, CONFIRM, CONTINUE
The one who prospects most wins.
Prospecting: connecting with people, collecting information to know them, contribute solutions, confirm you understand who they are, continue to the next step of helping them.
