1984 said:*sigh*...glad you got a "warm and fuzzy" because I just lost mine (along with my patience). If we (the leadership) can't even show we're vested, even a little bit, how can we expect the troops to buy in, or care. :facepalm:
...the situation that PC explains above is a good example of a "Manager", however it is a horrible example of a Leader.
Troop WO isn't really a manager. The Troop WO, to be technically speaking, isn't really in charge of that many people. Section commanders are the supervisors for most of the personnel in the troop, and they report to a platoon commander. The troop or platoon WO is generally the person in charge of discipline, administration and the operations of the troop/platoon. Sort of a troop level CSM, the adjt or troop level Ops cell.
We all should be familiar with how things works in real life, that the WO often more or less runs the troop, much like many CSMs, adjts and Ops cells run their units.
