You can make someone do what you want them to do or make them want to do what they need to do! Both ways get the job done. The second way builds esprit de corps!
Did you eve wonder why the Marine Corps does not send their senior Enlisted personnel to the Navy's Senior Enlisted Academy? Because the Marine Corps does not believe in management! They believe in LEADERSHIP! I have preached on this topic before. I believe you manage assets, things, money, ammo, but not people. The effective individual LEADS people! It is an interesting fact that you cannot lead from the rear! That is a strange concept to today's military suits! General George Patton was in the front of his troops! General eisenhower was in Great Britan, with his mistress, on silk sheets! Get my point!
I have also said in numerous venues that: "You cannot manage a man into a burning engine room." Normal people run from danger, but properly lead, they will do anything regardless of the danger. Again, look at any mass conflagration, and there are many written in Naval history. In every case, some strong willed LEADER stood up and showed the way! Look at the attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941. A Navy Steward's Mate named Dorey Miller, manned a 20 MM Machine gun to defend his ship and his shipmates. He had little or no 20mm training but he knew he had to do something and he did.
Look at history and let the successful, honorable, example of our past heros be your guide. You will never see anyone managing the situation. You will see LEADERSHIP.
