This isn’t about me.  I am the host.  It is about you who are working day-in-day-out, often the only person you talked to all day who thinks this is a good idea, who has to reach deep each day to have the intensity, drive and focus to build a successful organization.

 LEADERSHIP LESSON:

“Best thing you can do to become a great recruiter is to become a great Soldier.”  CSM Butz

ADRP 6-22

4 PARTS OF ADRP 6-22

PART ONE:  THE BASICS OF LEADERSHIP

PART TWO:  THE ARMY LEADER: PERSON OF CHARACTER, PRESENCE AND INTELLECT

PART THREE:  COMPETENCY-BAED LEADERSHIP FOR DIRECT THROUGH STRATEGIC LEVELS

PART FOUR:  LEADING AT ORGANIZATIONAL AND STRATEGIC LEVELS

DIRECT LEVEL LEADERSHIP

 

2-28. Direct leadership is face-to-face or first-line leadership. It generally occurs in organizations where subordinates see their leaders all the time: teams, squads, sections, platoons, departments, companies, batteries, and troops. The direct leader’s span of influence may range from a few to dozens of people. 2-

 

  1. Direct leaders develop their subordinates one-on-one and influence the organization indirectly through their subordinates. For instance, a company commander is close enough to the Soldiers to exert direct influence when observing training or interacting with subordinates during other scheduled functions.

 

2-30. Direct leaders generally experience more certainty and less complexity than organizational and strategic leaders. Mainly, they are close enough to the action to determine or address problems. Examples of direct leadership tasks are monitoring and coordinating team efforts, providing clear and concise mission intent, and setting expectations for performance.

79T TUNE-UP:

School recruiting efforts are designed to build interest in the ARNG and gain high quality NPS enlistments. The ease and success of these efforts will depend in large part upon the ARNG’s image within the community at large,
the school’s attitude towards campus recruiting efforts and perceptions of whether recruiting efforts add or detract from the educational experience of the students. The factors which may affect the school recruiting efforts include:

  1. Type of school (public or private).
  2. Traditional attendance-based high schools.
  3. Vocational-technical and trade schools.
  4. Community colleges.
  5. Universities.
  6. Alternative and adult education centers.
  7. Private, parochial, and specialized schools.
  8. Demographic area in which the students live.
  9. Educational, work, and life goals.
  10. Compatibility of the school, students, and faculty with the ARNG situation.
  11. No experience or past experiences with military recruiting personnel.

 

PERPETUALLY PROSPECTING:

5C CONVERSATIONS:  CONNECT, COLLECT, CONTRIBUTE, CONFIRM, CONTINUE

October

As a best business practice, you should contact 40 percent of your senior enrollment, 50 percent of your HS graduates and 40 percent of your junior enrollment by 31 October. It is advisable to compare junior and senior enrollments with your previous year’s list for those individuals who are no longer enrolled and for those individuals who are new enrollments. An inquiry with HS officials concerning these individuals will assist you in making the appropriate entries in your RWS. This is an excellent opportunity for you to make contact with new students. You will likely be the first to make yourself known to them. Remember, first to contact, first to contract.  Concentrate at this time on ASVAB scheduling of any assigned schools that have not scheduled the test. Homecoming normally happens in October. Coordinate with the homecoming committee to get involved with the parade. Contact assigned HS that have not scheduled the ASVAB and ask to discuss the benefits of offering it to their students. Many HS publish the first issue of their newspaper in October. Coordinate with the marketing NCO to place an advertisement. Ensure that we meet all financial obligations in a timely manner. Also, ensure that you contribute the group photograph you obtained in May of the previous school year to the editor of the school newspaper for publication as a special student interest story.  There is no better way for you to build a relationship with this very important contact than to make regular contributions that are of interest to the students. As the month before elections, October is a great time to give presentations to school history and government classes about the electoral process and how the ARNG serves a vital role in the security of our nation. Get involved with local Boy Scout troops. Scoutmasters are typically happy to get any assistance you can offer. Many scouts are HS students and potential enlistees or student influencers.  Order personal items (pens, bags, mouse-pads, and mugs) as needed monthly for special events.
