LEADERSHIP LESSON:  (Professional Development)

ADRP 6-22, Para 3-7


3-7. Duty extends beyond law, regulation, and orders. Professionals consistently strive to do their best. Army leaders exercise initiative when they fulfill the purpose, not merely the letter, of received orders. With initiative, leaders take responsibility for their actions and those of their subordinates. Conscientiousness is a human trait that internalizes duty. Conscientious leaders have a sense of responsibility for personal contributions to the Army, demonstrated through dedicated effort, organization, thoroughness, reliability, and practicality. Conscientiousness guides leaders to do what is right.


Duty – We have a duty to our Nation, State and the Army National Guard and that duty is making our mission.  Don’t look at your mission as a task or a chore.  Look at your mission as an honor to serve your country in the capacity of a Recruiting and Retention NCO.  We are very privileged to be able to live and work among our community, offering jobs, training and Army Values to our youth.  Our job matters!  The Guard gives us millions of dollars’ worth of tuition, bonuses and training dollars to give away in our community… we just need to find who wants it.  If we do our duty with heartfelt pride and a good work ethic, mission will come.
