The day begins at 0500 with accountability and unit exorcise until 0730. Then the rest of the day is controlled by the course material and training that is required of me to teach my Marines. I learn teaching skills, management technics, and various military combat tactics. Higher level management is often times clustered and uncoordinated but the mid-level – more... management (small unit leadership) is in charge of the direct disciplinary and educational guidance that makes the lowest levels of the unit and effective and disciplined fighting force. My Co-workers consisted of mid to high level leadership in this community of leaders we are able to find the most effective means to our end goals. The hardest part of the job is dealing with subordinates issues in their daily personal life. The most enjoyable part of this job is when, your men perform flawlessly and with precision quickly and efficiently neutralize your target objective in stressful situations and under pressure. – less
