  1. 1. CHAPTER 3 LEADERSHIP SKILLS
  2. 2. People behave in ways that will best satisfy their needs. Air Water • Survival is the most basic human need. Food • Higher needs are felt only after basic needs are satisfied.
  3. 3. • Food and safety seldom bring happiness or sense of accomplishment. • The satisfaction of higher needs brings a sense of well-being and pride.
  4. 4. Survival needs are similar for all people. Higher needs vary greatly mainly because of the environment in which the individual has grown up.
  5. 5. This chapter covers those things that influence the behavior of people. Knowledge of human nature, and what makes people behave as they do, is important for a leader.
  6. 6. Everyone understands the basic needs for food, water, and shelter.
  7. 7. Once basic needs are satisfied, desire for job approval, recognition, and achievement will quickly take over.
  8. 8. Higher needs may never be completely satisfied. That is probably good for it might stop new ideas and initiatives.
  9. 9. Abraham Maslow was one of the foremost writers on people’s needs as motivators.
  10. 10. His theory was that needs are arranged from lowest (physiological) to highest (selffulfillment) in a hierarchy of needs order.
  11. 11. Individuals will try to satisfy all or nearly all of the lowest level needs before they are motivated to try those at higher levels.
  12. 12. Motivation The psychological feature that arouses an individual to action toward a desired goal The reason for the action That which gives purpose and direction to behavior
  13. 13. Two of Napoleon’s many quotes addressed the concept long before Maslow’s theory. “An army marches on its stomach.” “A soldier will fight long and hard for a bit of colored ribbon.”
  14. 14. A leader must be sure that the basic needs of subordinates are satisfied, then try to satisfy their higher needs.
  15. 15. Leaders can satisfy higher needs by: • ensuring subordinates’ work gives them the rewards of ~ belonging ~ status ~ advancement • assigning jobs in a way that each person does their part well and all work toward the unit’s goal
  16. 16. Most people seek growth in their work. They want: • job responsibilities that use their technical knowledge and ability • to become skilled in their trade
  17. 17. Mastery of a job adds to a sense of achievement. Doing a “good job” in itself must be personally rewarding.
  18. 18. People also desire proper recognition for doing a job well. This increases the drive to succeed.
  19. 19. Calling attention to mistakes is necessary, but recognition of mistakes alone will decrease the desire to achieve.
  20. 20. After inspecting a job, give deserved compliments first, then follow with constructive criticism, if needed.
  21. 21. Constructive Criticism The process of offering valid and well-reasoned opinions about the work of others, usually involving both positive and negative comments, in a friendly manner rather than an oppositional one Criticism or advice that is useful and intended to help or improve something, often with an offer of possible solutions
  22. 22. Most people want to contribute to the success of the unit and organization, but they generally need a boost or reward for doing a good job. Leaders must remember this human nature factor.
  23. 23. Sometimes a leader needs to impose discipline when necessary to improve attitude or performance: ~ additional physical training ~ verbal reprimand ~ written report ~ withhold advancement recommendation
  24. 24. However, punishment alone cannot motivate. Motivation is an inner force. The motivated person is self-starting and self-controlled.
  25. 25. What makes people want to do a better job?
  26. 26. In the civilian world, people doing a better job directly affect production, relationships with unions, and profits.
  27. 27. In the Navy, these things directly affect morale, readiness, and reenlistments.
  28. 28. Surveys indicate there are nine main factors motivating people to do a better job. In order of importance: 1. Feeling that one’s work is important 2. Opportunity to do interesting work 3. Opportunity for self-development and improvement 4. Good pay 5. Chance for advancement 6. Respect as an individual 7. Chance to produce work of high quality 8. Knowing what is going on in the organization 9. High degree of freedom on the job

  36. 36. Motivating People To Do A Better Job 8. Knowing what is going on in the organization
  37. 37. Motivating People To Do A Better Job 9. High degree of freedom on the job
  38. 38. Motivating People To Do A Better Job Items most often put at the bottom of any such “motivations” listing are: • the threat of disciplinary action • not having to work too hard • working under close supervision Note that these three factors are negative, whereas the previous nine factors were all positive.
  39. 39. Supervision Management by overseeing the performance or operation of a person or group
  40. 40. To help motivate, a leader must: • give each the chance to develop abilities and talents • allow initiative and judgment within constraints
  41. 41. Talent A marked innate ability, as for artistic accomplishment Natural endowment or ability of a superior quality
  42. 42. High morale is the result of effective leadership.
  43. 43. High Morale No direction of human activity is possible without it. No failure is final until morale is destroyed.
  44. 44. Morale is based on the belief of the leader in the follower.
  45. 45. Morale is based on the belief of the leader in the follower, of the follower in the leader.
  46. 46. Morale is based on the belief of the leader in the follower, of the follower in the leader, of each in themselves.
  47. 47. Morale is based on the belief of the leader in the follower, of the follower in the leader, of each in themselves, and both in the cause.
  48. 48. Morale The state of mind of an individual affected by: ~ living conditions ~ food ~ quarters ~ pay ~ duties ~ how important a person feels within the group
  49. 49. Everything that makes a person feel well and satisfied builds up morale.
  50. 50. Everything that bothers a person lowers morale.
  51. 51. To have high morale, an individual must first have standards and goals that make daily life meaningful.
  52. 52. Second, they need to know what must be completed or solved in order to reach those goals.
  53. 53. Third, a person’s basic goals must be in line with other members of the group who provide support in times of stress.
  54. 54. The leader must realize that high morale is present only in groups that are disciplined and efficient.
  55. 55. Morale can be measured by inspections of personnel and their equipment.
  56. 56. Interviews can help determine if unit morale is high or low.

  62. 62. A leader must believe that each person has something of value to say and may know something the leader does not.
  63. 63. Starting a Conversation A leader should begin a conversation with a subject of interest to the subordinate. “Break the ice” about unit activity, school athletics, clubs, etc., not about health, finances, family, or hobbies.

  84. 84. Ending a Conversation Thoughtfully ending a conversation is almost as important as starting or keeping one going.
