Carry out the duties of a team member:
Through your cadet years you will develop a sense of teamwork, trust and friendship. Simply put, "TEAM" means:
In cadets there are lots of tasks and responsibilities that everyone has to do. You may need to rely on your team mates or staff to help complete a task. You should lend a hand freely, and expect that others will help you when you need it.
Being a good team member is the first step in becoming a leader. Your leaders and instructors have been where you are today. Trust their experience and work on your skills so you can become a good leader.
Be honest with yourself, and your team mates, about your personal limits things you can not or will not do. Do not try to hide behind foolish or misleading behaviour. Accept your team mates limits, but be encouraging and supportive to try to get them to improve. Never resort to violent or vindictive behaviour, and never leave a team mate behind.
Be patient and understanding when things go wrong, when people make mistakes, or when plans change at the last minute. Expect the unexpected.
Making responsible decisions means doing the right thing even when no one is watching.
Leadership skills start with the development of communication, interpersonal and active listening skills:
concentrate on the person, do not let yourself be distracted;
A acknowledge, let them know you are listening;
R respond, paraphrase back what you think they are saying, and ask questions to confirm your understanding; and,
E empathy imagine the problem through their eyes.
