Set A: Volume 2

From your reading, what is meant by the “Profession of Arms”?

The Profession of Arms is a distinct, professional sub-culture with a body of theory and specialized knowledge, service to the community and nation (unlimited liability clause), and how these all combine to defend freedom, pursue peace, and protect America and its interests.

From your reading, explain the meaning of the oath of enlistment/reenlistment.

AFDD1-1 refers to it as a promise, ethical agreement or bond of one’s word. “It is with these oaths that you, as an Airman, first commit yourself to the basic core values, placing service to the Constitution, the President, and compatriots before yourself.

From your reading, what do all Airmen accept and embrace upon taking the Oath of Enlistment?

Airmen agree to limit their freedoms to be readily available for short-notice assignments. They also forfeit certain freedoms like speech and expression to support the needs of national security. These and many other unique challenges require Airmen to work hard, train hard, and sacrifice regularly as they continue to master their profession, the profession of arms.

Define and list the elements that make up Warrior Ethos.

Warrior Ethos is the tenacity to push through, self-discipline, self-control, hardiness of spirit despite physical and mental hardships, moral, and physical courage. The elements include: Hardiness of Spirit, Courage (Moral & Physical), and Resiliency.

Define Air Force resilience.

Air Force Resiliency is an Airmen’s ability to withstand, recover, and/or grow in the face of stressors and changing demands by orchestrating the use of base resources, support activities, peers, and leadership.

Give examples of Air Force resilience.

Resiliency helps Airmen to overcome and “bounce back” from physical and mental hardships that are faced in every day challenges associated with military life to include: deaths, loss of job or position, divorce, frequent deployments, permanent change of station (PCS), family separation, promotion testing, and workplace violence.

How can resiliency impact your effectiveness as an NCO?

Resiliency helps Airmen to overcome and “bounce back” from the physical and mental hardships faced every day.

From your reading, what elements do American Airmen contribute to the military mission that ensures the United States Air Force is the premier air force on the globe?

Their continued professionalism, their commitment to the Oath of Enlistment, and their dedication to the Core Values.

SSgt Tate is a supply management supervisor who wants to be the best she can be as an Airman and a professional. She values training and enhancement opportunities and makes an effort to acquire higher education. She also wants to ensure the growth of her Airmen, so she makes time to sit down with each one of them to provide clear guidance and expectations. She does not hesitate to correct substandard behaviors or recognize Airmen who exceed the standards. The result of Tate’s actions has played an instrumental part in her workcenter receiving top awards from Group Command.

This scenario

BEST illustrates:

a. Service before Self; NCO effectiveness

b. Progressive Professionalism (P2); unit effectiveness

c. Warrior Ethos; mission effectiveness

b. This answer is CORRECT. According to the Airmanship chapter, Progressive Professionalism (P2) is the concept of improving oneself on the professional continuum through education, training, ethical behavior, and being morally balanced. The foundation of P2 is the DDR, a methodology of providing Airmen with direction, discipline and recognition as require. Tate is promoting that by taking the effort necessary to improve herself on the professional continuum and providing direction, discipline and recognition for her Airmen as required. This will have a positive impact on the unit effectiveness.

 

TSgt Smith is the NCOIC of night shift in the maintenance section. He was chosen because of his extensive knowledge and experience, as well as his ability to influence others. He continually emphasizes the importance of upholding standards and ensuring the job gets done right. He is well liked by all the Airmen, and they all look up to him. One evening, SrA Williams approached him and informed him that he couldn’t finish a job because the only torque wrench they have is overdue calibration. Smith thought about it for a little while and instructed Williams to use it anyway. He justified it by saying that it’s just one day overdue, what could possibly be off in one day.

The actions of TSgt Smith ________________and will

MOST LIKELY result in _______________________.

a. summarize Direction, Discipline, and Recognition; decreased mission effectiveness

b. support Resiliency; increasing his subordinate’s effectiveness

c. violate the AF Core Values; decreased mission effectiveness

c. This answer is CORRECT. According to the Airmanship chapter, Air Force Core Values are said to be our inner voice; the voice of self-control and the basis for the trust imperative in today’s military. These institutional values and principles of conduct provide the moral framework within which military activities take place. By instructing the use of the overdue torque wrench, Smith is violating the AF Core Values and negatively affecting the mission effectiveness.

As TSgt Burke and his team learn of their upcoming deployment to Afghanistan, he recalls the physical strain they endured on their last deployment working with heavy gear in the desert environment. To ensure his team is trained and fit for the deployment, Burke enlisted the help of an Air Force exercise physiologist to develop an exercise plan to help his team endure the physical strain of the gear in the desert climate while disposing of explosives. The conditioning has made a huge difference in their effectiveness at the deployed location.

This scenario

BEST illustrates _______________________________.

 

a. High Intensity Exercise Endurance

b. Functional Training

c. Functional Endurance Intensity

b.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Human Performance chapter, Functional Training is defined as any type of exercise that has a direct relationship to the activities you perform in your daily life. In the scenario, Burke reflects back to his last deployment and realizes the difficulty his team had working in the desert climate while wearing the heavy gear. So, he enlists the help of an Air Force exercise physiologist to develop a Functional Training plan that resulted in the team being more effective.

SSgt Stanley collapsed during squadron PT. TSgt Jones ran over to her to ensure she was okay, but she looked very pale and weak. He helped her to a spot to rest and regain her strength. Once Jones was comfortable with her condition, he asked, “Sergeant Stanley, I’ve noticed you’ve lost a lot of weight in the past several weeks. Are you getting enough to eat?” She responded, “I’ve been trying to lose weight in preparation for my upcoming PT test. I can’t afford to fail; my EPR is due in a few months, and I don’t want a referral.”

 

Stanley’s actions will

 

a. Loss of strength and endurance and potential injuries due to fatigue; NCO

b. Passing the fitness assessment, but there will be health problems; mission

c. Difficulty with anaerobic activity, but will not affect aerobic activity; unit

a.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Human Performance chapter, low nutrient intake can compromise performance and negate training benefits to include the loss of strength and endurance. Additionally, it can result in lower energy stores resulting in an overall feeling of tiredness and increase the risk of injury. In the scenario, Stanley’s improper nutrition may result in weight loss but will not help the fitness assessment and may create health problems that will lessen her ability to be an effective NCO.

What is the difference between culture and heritage?

Culture is the set of shared attitudes, values, goals, and practices that characterizes a company or an organization. Heritage is something transmitted by or acquired from a predecessor or property that descends to an heir.

Air Force Manual (AFMAN) 36-2203 covers ________________ and ________________ ceremonies, while Air Force Instruction (AFI) 36-2903 governs ________________ and _________________.

Air Force Manual (AFMAN) 36-2203 covers reveille and retreat ceremonies, while Air Force Instruction (AFI) 36-2903 governs dress and appearance .

What is the purpose of drill and ceremony?

In addition to discipline, military drill teaches and develops teamwork, confidence, pride, alertness, attention to detail, and esprit de corps. The purpose of a ceremony is to accomplish one or more of the following: provide distinctive honors to national symbols or individuals on special occasions; display proficiency and the state of training of the troops of a command; promote teamwork and pride in an Air Force organization; contribute to the public morale by displaying symbolically the strength and unity of the military in support of the nation.

Why is it important for an NCO to know drill and ceremony?

Because all NCOs are charged with advancing the Profession of Arms by having uniform and flag ceremonies, by learning how to work as a team, by improving your appearance and discipline, and by demonstrating Excellence in All We Do. Ceremonies also advance the POA by increasing pride in uniform and Air Force heritage and by renewing patriotic feelings.

 

How might an NCO use the knowledge of drill and ceremony to enhance subordinate and work center effectiveness?

NCOs who can effectively lead subordinates in drill and ceremony will be more effective leaders in the work center. NCOs who are able to instill qualities necessary for successful drill and ceremony—discipline, cohesion, teamwork, confidence, pride, alertness, attention to detail, and esprit de corps—can also instill these qualities in subordinates in the work center.

TSgt Sharp, known for his consistency and maintenance of good order, performed an open ranks inspection. During the inspection, Sharp noticed that Airman Tidwell’s uniform was missing a button and was wrinkled. After the inspection, he counseled Tidwell and informed him that according to AFI 36-2903 each Air Force member is required to keep their uniform neat, clean, pressed, buttoned, and properly maintained at all times. The next month Tidwell won the Squadron “Look Sharp Award.”

This scenario

BEST illustrates TSgt Sharp’s understanding of ___________________ and its impact on ________________.

 

a. inspections and discipline; NCO effectiveness.

b. personal pride and confidence; unit effectiveness.

c. culture and esprit de corps; mission effectiveness.

a.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Air Force Culture chapter, all Air Force members must adhere to standards of neatness, cleanliness, safety and military image to provide the appearance of a disciplined service member. A distinct hallmark of military precision and discipline is the ability of an individual Airman to present a perfect appearance. Sharp is supporting that concept by conducting an open rank inspection and enforcing standards. Sharp’s action has ensured the maintenance of discipline which helped Tidwell win the “Look Sharp Award.”

 

MSgt Wyatt has been given the honor of conducting a retreat ceremony for Memorial Day. Since there are only a few days left before the event, Wyatt informs the team that they will practice at the end of each day to ensure they properly perform the ceremony. At the practice, Wyatt notices that they grumble and complain about having to wear the uniform and work on their day off. Wyatt decides to bring everyone in for a little talk and sternly states, “It’s hot and I know you would all rather be doing something else, but this retreat means a lot to the veterans and the families of the fallen.”

MSgt Wyatt’s interpretation of ________________ will

MOST LIKELY ____________________.

 

a. teamwork and esprit de corps; increase NCO effectiveness.

b. culture and heritage; increase mission effectiveness.

c. military culture and Airmanship; diminish mission effectiveness.

b.

This answer is CORRECT. According to Culture and Heritage chapter, understanding of the Air Force culture can help the NCO explain many of the current beliefs, actions and roles that determines the success of the military organization as a whole. Additionally, retreat ceremony pays respect to the flag that represents sacrifices of each and every service member for the freedom of this country. The words of Wyatt should motivate the Airmen to feel honor for their participation which will likely increase mission effectiveness.

 

 Define diversity.

Diversity is the fact or quality of being diverse: difference. Unlike in kind: distinct, varied; a point of respect in which things differ; variety.

Define the primary dimensions of diversity.

List 3 (three) ways Socio-Behavioral Tendencies effect the workplace.

– Poor communication and little or no teamwork

– Animosity toward one another

– Poor morale and lack of discipline

– Minimal use of creativity and experience and reduced productivity

– Discrimination

Identify the 5 (five) characteristics of a diversity supportive environment where individuals work cohesively in your workplace. List each characteristic and give an example of how each one supports a diverse organization.

– Act Proactively- Integrate diversity into everyday thinking

– Leadership Driven- Endorses and actively champions diversity initiatives

– Encourage Ownership of Initiatives- Individuals value diversity and are committed to making it work

– Think Inclusively- Everyone is a valued member of the organization

– Mainstream Diversity- Diversity is a part of every effort

Give an example of 4 (four) Socio-Behavioral Tendencies and explain their meaning.

– Assumptions- Assuming is when you take the liberty of claiming something about a situation, item, or someone else that is not supported by fact. For instance, when you arrive at a new assignment, you assume that certain things will remain the same as your last base.

 

– Stereotypes- A fixed or distorted generalization about all members of a particular group. These images are often fueled by mass media reputations passed on by parents, peers, and other members of society. Stereotyping is a way you simplify the social world, reducing the efforts needed to think about the people you encounter.

– Prejudices- An adverse or unreasonable opinion about a person or group without all the facts and usually based on deeply held beliefs. Most prejudices are developed early in life, influenced by acquaintances or attachments to specific groups (such as family) during childhood.

– Social Biases- An inclination [predisposition] of temperament or outlook, a personal and sometimes unreasoned judgment. Being socially biased is where one unfairly favors or prefers a person, culture, group, or race to another. This is usually the effects of your upbringing, values, pre-existing beliefs, and interests. This makes it impossible for you to be impartial.

– Perceptions- The reception and deception of your conception. What you observe and experience becomes your reality until you are convinced or proven otherwise. Your assumptions, prejudices, and social biases contribute to your perceptions and shape how you think and feel. This can present a life-long effect on your life.

– Perspectives- Your take based on your position on particular subjects, issues, and matters that relate to you. It is how you mentally view or “see” a situation or the world around you from a particular angle. Otherwise regarded as opinions and personal beliefs, your perspective can affect how you live, interact, and react to others.

– Collusion- If you cooperate with others, knowingly or unknowingly, to reinforce those behaviors that prevent others from fully entering into the workplace culture. It can take the form of silence (neither supporting nor defending the right to inclusion of a certain person or group), denial (ignoring the existence of problems), or active participation (assisting others to reinforce exclusion).

– Discrimination- is the treatment or consideration of making a distinction in favor of or against a person or thing based on the group, class, or category to which that person or thing belongs rather than on individual merit.

I – Inclusion is making sure everyone has the opportunity to fully participate in the Workplace.

R – Respect is recognizing each person’s unique value, contributions, and potential to the organization.

List 3 (three) examples that describe why it is important to understand and employ the FAIR Way strategy.

– It provides NCOs with a consistent approach to deal effectively with diversity.

– It helps maximize retention and productivity.

– It helps maintain effective working relationships in work places.

What is Diversity?

The thought process we use to make sense of the world and what defines us.

What are Socio-Behavioral Tendencies (SBTs)?

TSgt Wyatt’s team is extremely competent and works well together. He considers all of the friendly teasing and joke-telling signs of a healthy team. This morning, two team members approach him and explain how uncomfortable they are with most of the jokes. Wyatt responds, “If I take action now, it might disrupt our deployment preparations and interfere with our teamwork. Do you two want that?” Both Airmen say, “No sir!” Wyatt says, “Good. Just ignore the humor for now, and I’ll deal with it as soon as we return.

TSgt Wyatt’s _______________ will

MOST LIKELY _______________.

 

a. failure to apply the FAIR Way; have a negative impact on mission effectiveness

b. diversity awareness; have a positive impact on his effectiveness

c. social sensitivity; have a negative impact on mission effectiveness

a.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Diversity chapter, FAIR Way employs four techniques for maximizing retention and productivity and maintaining effective working relationship in workplaces. Telling crude jokes that attack the cultural background of anyone is unacceptable. TSgt Wyatt needs to reinforce the Air Force Zero Tolerance policy when it comes to diversity with some team members. Acting as a force for the acceptance of diversity and addressing the perceived diversity issues as quickly as possible should help the team continue to work well together.

 

Upon entering the break room, the NCOIC MSgt Mitchell encounters two Airmen yelling at each other and says, “What’s going on here?” A1C Abbas states, “When I told A1C Shula to help us clean up, he called me prayer-boy and refused to follow my orders. I told him you put me in charge, so he has to follow my orders. He called me the same name again and that’s when you walked in.” Mitchell says, “Airman Shula, I put Airman Abbas in charge of the clean-up, therefore you will do as he says. No excuses. Do you understand me?” Snapping to attention, A1C Shula says, “Yes sir!” After Mitchell leaves, Shula says, “Alright prayer-boy, what do you want me to do?”

This scenario

BEST illustrates _______________ and its negative impact on ___________.

 

a. a non diversity-supportive environment; mission effectiveness

b. a diversity-supportive environment; mission effectiveness

c. Affirmative Action; mission effectiveness

a.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Diversity chapter, Diversity-Supportive Organization embraces all aspects of diversity and exhibits the following characteristics: act proactively, leadership-driven, encourage ownership of initiatives, think inclusively, and mainstream diversity. MSgt Mitchell’s work center is not portraying those characteristics and it will negatively affect their mission effectiveness.

 

Define ethics.

Ethics is a set of standards of conduct that guide decisions and actions based on duties derived from core values.

Define ethical leadership.

Ethical leadership is about knowing your core values and having the courage to live by them in all parts of your life in service of the common good.

Give examples of 3 accepted ethical codes the Air Force uses to maintain an ethical climate.

USAF Core Values, AFI 36-2618, Airmen’s Creed, Professional Development Guide (PDG), Code of Conduct, DOD Joint Staff Guide 5260 Service Member’s Personal Protection Guide, Law of Armed Conflict (LOAC), Uniformed Code of Military Justice (UCMJ)

Why should NCO’s commit to and follow USAF accepted codes of conduct and ethical principles?

NCOs should commit to and follow USAF accepted Codes of Conduct and ethical principles in order to act and behave in an ethical manner in any given situation.

Leaders who model ________________ ________________ inspire confidence in those they lead, inspiring them to accept and follow decisions from ethical leaders and organizations with an ethical climate rather than from unethical leaders or organizations with a corrosive environment.

Leaders who model ethical behavior inspire confidence in those they lead, inspiring them to accept and follow decisions from ethical leaders and organizations with an ethical climate rather than from unethical leaders or organizations with a corrosive environment.

Subordinates of leaders who model ethical behavior such as setting the example, always doing the right thing, and holding those accountable that do not adhere to __________, _____________, and _______________ are more apt to accept and follow decisions from ethical leaders than from those who don’t.

Subordinates of leaders who model ethical behavior such as setting the example, always doing the right thing, and holding those accountable that do not adhere to rules, results, and realities are more apt to accept and follow decisions from ethical leaders than from those who don’t.

According to Sarah Boatman, NCO’s should create and promote an ethical climate and foster ethical behavior using what three principles?

No rewards for unethical behavior, Sanctions and forgiveness for mistakes, Appropriate action taken for dereliction of duty

Match the ethical traps provided below with their definition.

 

a. ____________________________making decisions based on personal values/beliefs rather than on military rules, regulations, and codes of conduct.

b. ____________________________making decisions based on a “win at all cost” attitude rather than on military rules, regulations, and codes of conduct.

c. ____________________________ making decisions based on respect and/or loyalty to an individual, unit, or organization, etc. rather than on military rules, regulations, and codes of conduct.

d. ___________________________ making decisions based on how the decision will impact one’s reputation/standing among peers, subordinates, supervisors, community etc. rather than on military rules, regulations, and codes of conduct.

;

a. Ethical Relativism

c. Loyalty Syndrome

d. Worry over Image

SSgt Walker and his team are preparing for an inspection. While organizing the storage room, A1C Bates discovers equipment that should have been turned in months ago per the AFI. He reports the findings to Walker and suggests hiding the equipment until after the inspection. Walker responds, “That will quickly take care of the problem, but understand there are possible consequences for that decision.” After considering the consequences, Bates decides to fill out the paper work to turn-in the equipment. On the inspection report, it was noted that equipment was turned in late; however, the work center identified it and corrected the discrepancy in a proper manner.

This scenario

BEST illustrates effective use of ___________________ and its impact on NCO, unit, and mission effectiveness.

;

a. Dr. Toner’s legal test.

b. the ethical principle of the Three R’s.

c. the DOD Joint Staff Guide 5260 .

b.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Ethical Leadership lesson principles, the Three R’s of ethical principles are rules, results, and realities. It explains that “rules” gives us the ethical guidance, “results” are the outcomes, the bottom line, and the consequences of not following those rules, and “realities” which recognize the importance of the situation or circumstances. The scenario depicts SSgt Walker thinking through those areas and coming to an ethical decision.

;

SSgt Stanley, a well-respected NCO, conducted a review of the work center’s training records for the upcoming Operational Readiness Inspection. During his review, he identified several required tasks that weren’t signed off. Due to time constraints, he had his Airmen initial off on those tasks. He planned to go over the areas at another time.

SSgt Stanley’s behavior of ____________________will

MOST LIKELY __________ NCO, unit, and mission effectiveness.

;

a. “drive for success”; reduce

b. “worry over image”; reduce

c. “ethical relativism”; increase

a.

This answer is CORRECT. According to the Ethical Leadership chapter, “drive for success” is one of four categories of ethical traps. It is making decisions based on a “win at all cost” attitude rather than on military rules, regulations, and codes of conduct. Stanley fell into that trap by “pencil-whipping” training records to pass the inspection, which could be detrimental to NCO, unit, and mission effectiveness.
