Plan of Action (Finance/82nd FMSU)

The Army Leadership Model is based on "BE, KNOW, DO". The "BE" and "KNOW" encompass the following:


i). Character: Use the Army values, empathy and warrior ethos. Self awareness is also apart of character. This is the character needed for the Soldier who says, "I am an Expert and I am a Professional". These are values that are internal and core to you. So remember them, study them, reflect and re-evaluate them and act on them when performing assigned duties and interacting with seniors, peers and subordinates. Do everything with your utmost and with the integrity of your heart. Otherwise, you are nothing without it. Show respect in little and in big things, then people will want to team up with you. Apply NIMS.

ii). Presence: Use military bearing, physical fitness, confidence and resilience. You are perceived by others based on your outward appearance, demeanor, actions and words. Use the KAF smart book, AR PAM 670-1 and other regulations that govern who you are as a Soldier. Continue improving aspects of your Presence. Observe that your uniform and grooming are on-point. No loose strings, no mismatched uniform. Keep fitness and H/W on point. Use the grading system every 2 weeks.

iii). Intellect: These encompass agility, judgment, innovation, interpersonal tact and domain knowledge. Pursue knowing the DDS system, POS system and how to fill Milpay forms and customer service skills is talking professionally to any and everybody. Be innovative in operating these systems in out-of-the-box situations. You have enrolled in 2 courses of 6 credit hours for Civilian Ed. Develop innovative ideas to improve the Cashier SOP. We are a Customer Service Operation; look out the opposite side of your window to make sure the information is adequate and the rates are up-to date. Some customers may not need to see you once the information is out there. Maintain situational awareness since we are still in enemy territory. You don't want your weapons to be snatched and used against you when you are not watching.

The Army Leadership Model is based on "BE, KNOW, DO". The "DO" encompasses the following:
