P.O. GREEN   Today's Leadership Trait
09-18-2012 10:14:18 AM EST

Knowledge - know your job and be able to pass it on to others. If you don't know the answer, admit it, learn from those around you.

Accountability: the quality or state of being accountable; especially : an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one's actions. I for one would like to thank A/Sgt Dedier for taking responsibility and being accountable for himself. We should all do the same. This is what second chances are for. So let's all please try to extend the olive branch and move forward together, Thank you

P.O. GREEN   BE TOUGH, STAND TALL
09-18-2012 8:30:10 AM EST

THICK SKINNED! YOU NEED TO BE THICK SKINNED in Law Enforcement. Once people get under your skin, they win. WE DO NOT LOSE! WE CAN'T! In this business, it might just cost you your life. When you feel as if your supervisors are riding you or calling you out, STAND UP, STAND TALL, AND LISTEN TO THEM!!! IF WE DON'T WANT YOU AROUND, WE WOULDN'T WASTE OUR TIME POSTING OR TALKING TO YOU! Our job is to make you better. Just like coaches in sports. Our job is to win the game. Remember that. BE TOUGH!!! WE ARE THE NYPD/CTTF! LET'S GO

When disagreements occur, we should stand up and take responsibility for it.  I consider this unit to be the best in the program. It couldn't be so without each and every one of us participating and getting the job done. This unit is like a family and with every family there will be riffs differences and dislikes. With that said I want to personally apologize to anyone if not everyone that has felt indifferent about my supervisory tactics and the way I approach and speak to people. Like PO Green I can be very blunt and short at times and I realize that may be rubbing people the wrong way. Going forward I would like anyone to please pull me aside (or text) and speak to me if you feel I'm not treating you correctly or speaking to you in a wrong way. Even though we are a para-military organization and there does need to be somewhat of a chain of command I also understand that we are volunteers and every one may not be use to or accustom to such an environment.  You can only move forward once you've learned and accepted the mistakes of the past and present.

My posts are meant to BUILD this team up! Not break it or anybody down. If you get insulted, GET MAD, STAND UP AND BRUSH YOURSELF OFF, THEN MOVE ON. It will only make you better. Remember that! In regards to the post by concerned that has been erased, I don't need any help. Thanks but no thanks. We May break you down at times but we sure the hell will BUILD you up! I am very BLUNT at times. That is my style. IT WORKS!!!! IT SPARKS UP THIS UNIT AND I WILL NOT CHANGE MY STYLE FOR ANYTHING!!! DON'T LIKE IT? TOO BAD! Now, let's move on and get back to doing what we do best. LET'S MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!! HOOOOORAH!

P.O. Green   Constructive Criticism
09-17-2012 8:18:03 PM EST
Constructive criticism (often shortened to 'CC' or 'concrit') is 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. In collaborative work, this kind of criticism is often a valuable tool in raising and maintaining performance standards. Because of the overuse of negative, nagging criticism, some people become defensive even when receiving constructive criticism given in a spirit of good will. Constructive criticism is more likely to be accepted if the criticism is focused on the recipient's work or behavior. That is, personality issues must be avoided as much as is possible. Critical thinking can help identify relevant issues to focus on. Especially sensitive individuals may adopt a passive, defeated attitude if they view a situation as personal, pervasive, or permanent (see learned helplessness). Others may adopt an aggressive response. In an online forum lacking face-to-face contact, constructive criticism can be easily misinterpreted and online exchanges often spiral out of control, becoming flamewars. Effective interpersonal communication skills can be helpful to assess the recipient's frame of mind. During initial exchanges or when encountering defensive individuals, effective criticism calls for softer language and inclusion of positive comments. When the recipient strongly identifies with contentious areas (such as politics or religion), non-offensive criticism becomes challenging. On the other hand, stronger language can sometimes break through a defensive shell. Further, many people (both as providers and even recipients of criticism) appreciate a blunt style. They see bluntness as honest and efficient while viewing softer approaches as manipulative, condescending, tedious, or confining. Often, such people view stronger exchanges as lively and engaging. Adopting the most effective style of criticism should be tempered by the cultural context, the recipient's personality, and nature of the relationship between provider and recipient. To assess a situation, one should put out exploratory feelers and initially adopt a perceptive rather than judgmental attitude; conflict resolution skills can be helpful. As a recipient of criticism, one can benefit by focusing on the constructive elements of the criticism and by attributing charitable interpretations to those who use strong language. By adopting an open attitude to criticism, one may achieve greater personal development and help uncover blind spots. Alternatively, such openness may be subjected to ridicule especially in a cynical or honor-based culture.

Just to echo what was already said, this is a extremely busy week in NYC. We in CTTF need to step up and show why we are the elite unit. We need to show that when it's time to step up we do. No excuses no childish behavior no grudges. Now is the time to shine and put all other things aside. With the UNGA all this week, POTUS in town tomorrow and the OWS ppl starting up again our assistance is greatly needed. There WILL be a supervisor in EVERY day this week so there will be no repeats of yesterday and no excuse of why you can't come in.

A/SGT. FRANCE IS CORRECT!! WE HAVE A VERY BUSY WEEK AHEAD OF US. THIS IS THE KIND OF WEEK THAT OTHER UNIT'S CAN'T HANDLE. THIS IS WHEN WE SHINE. THOSE OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN BORED MIGHT WANT TO COME IN AND JOIN A/SGT. FRANCE TONIGHT. WE GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL NOT BE BORED!!!! TODAY IS THE 1 YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF THE OCCUPY WALL STREET MOVEMENT.(I STILL DON'T KNOW WHAT THE HELL THEY ARE PROTESTING) AUXILIARIES CAN NOT BE ASSIGNED TO THE PROTEST DIRECTLY BUT WE ARE THE CTTF AND WE DEAL WITH THE ISSUES THAT THE 99% CAUSE. THAT'S WHERE YOU GUYS COME IN. YOU ARE ABLE TO GET DOWN AND ASSIST THE NYPD LIKE NO OTHER UNIT CAN. WE NEED YOU OUT THERE!!! CALL A/SGT FRANCE AND HE WILL FILL YOU IN. HE HAS WORKED A LOT OF THESE DETAILS. HE KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING. FYI, MY PREVIOUS POST WAS NOT A SHOT IN HIS DIRECTION! HE IS ANYTHING BUT A WEAK LINK IN THIS CHAIN. IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO COME IN, LET US KNOW BY POSTING WHAT TIME. WE HAVE TO KNOW BECAUSE ONCE WE ARE ENGAGED IN THE DETAIL, IT WILL BE TOUGH TO KEEP RUNNING BACK TO THE COMMAND TO PICK PEOPLE UP. LET'S GET READY TO ROCK N ROLL!!!! GET MOTIVATED, STAY DEDICATED, BE PROUD! WE ARE THE CTTF

I don't normally post, but PO Green and I have been discussing a lot of things recently, and one topic that we've hit on quite a bit is leadership. Many of you know I am a Marine. The following is a list of leadership traits the Marine Corps espouses and I think they really apply here in the NYPD. I'm sorry this is a long post but I think it is important for everyone to take to heart. 1. Integrity - when you give your word keep it, people depend on you. 2. Knowledge - know your job and be able to pass it on to others. If you don't know the answer, admit it, learn from those around you. 3. Courage - There are two kinds of courage, physical and moral. Fix your mind on your mission. A poor decision is better than a half-hearted attempt. Know whats right and stand up for it. 4. Decisiveness - Get all the facts and make up your mind when you've weighed them. Say what you mean and mean what you say. 5. Dependability - Get the job done no matter what the obstacles are. Never make excuses for yourself, stay on the job until its done, know what needs to be done and where your duty lies. 6. Initiative - Think ahead. If you see something that needs to be done, don't wait to be told to do it. 7. Tact - The right thing at the right time, consideration for others, courtesy. A tactful leader is fair, firm, and friendly. 8. Justice - Give every one of your subordinates a chance to prove themselves. Help those that fall short of your standards. 9. Enthusiasm - The more you know about something, the greater your interest and enthusiasm. Show it. Others will follow your lead. 10. Bearing - This is how you present yourself, uniform pressed and looking good. It's also how you conduct yourself. Don't ever show your concern over a situation even if you feel it. Speak plainly and simply. If you lose control of your tone you lose control of the situation. 11. Endurance - Never think about quitting, every leader must have endurance beyond that of his subordinates. You don't have to train to be miserable but you do have to train to end misery. 12. Unselfishness - Get the best you can for your subordinates all the time before you get it for yourself. Share the hardships and privileges. Give credit where credit is due. 13. Loyalty - Back your subordinates when they're right, correct them when they're wrong, you're being loyal either way. Never criticize your unit, seniors, or fellow officers in the presence of subordinates and make sure they don't do it either. 14. Judgement - This comes with experience. It is simply weighing all the facts in any situation and applying the other 13 traits, then make the best decision you can.
