GENERAL RESPONSIBILITIES OF CADET LEADERS

03. Be responsible for the effective training, discipline, morale, espirit de corps, appearance, and performance of your company.

04. Present an example of proper military bearing and appearance at all times. You will find that it lends a sense of urgency, dignity, and authority to your commands and directives. Set the example for your company appearance, attitude, conduct, bearing, tact, discipline, and performance. LEAD BY EXAMPLE.

05. Supervise the training of the cadets to which you are responsible. Help and instruct them when needed and never ridicule or permit others to ridicule your subordinate's performance.

06. When given a task to carry out, do so to the best of your ability. Once a decision is made, carry out your task in a manner which does not indicate, if any, your dislike for the task. Remember: COMPLAINTS GO UP, NOT DOWN. If you show your dislike for the task or your peers, seniors or subordinates, that attitude will be reflected in your subordinates.

07. Always remember that loyalty works two ways: to your superiors and to your subordinates.

08. Always keep the welfare and interest of your subordinates in mind, as you are their representative to the next higher command. See that they are properly represented.
