all his listeners or audience and assumed that they would have similar feelings towards the Battalion’s mission. Yaron was later surprised to discover an officer felt the complete opposite and expressed his difference of opinion to a Brigadier General. In this case, Yaron could have used a different approach and wording to relay the information to his entire audience so the perception of the mission could be seen in a better light. Lieutenant Colonel Daniel exhibits the transformational/thinking-feeling leadership style. “The transformational leadership style depends on high levels of communication from management to meet goals. Leaders motivate employees and enhance productivity and efficiency through communication and high visibility” ("5 Different Types of Leadership Styles," 2011). Lieutenant Daniel was very concerned. He tried to ensure the soldiers on the mission did not emotionally scar the settlers while maintaining the emotional health of the soldiers conducting the evacuation. Daniel had to be highly visible and available during this time to train and prepare the soldiers for an emotionally intense circumstance and he accomplished this mostly through role-playing. The benefits or pros from this style of training would be preparing the soldiers mentally to handle different scenarios that were introduced in the field and the ability to connect with the

Two cons that Daniel mentions with this training was that “over-determination can lead to the uncontrolled exertion of force and on the other hand, over- sensitivity might land the soldiers in situations in which they are not able to exert force at all” (Laufer, 2012, p. 153). The final benefit from this type of preparation is twofold. If successful, the use of psychologists in assisting soldiers perform sensitive missions would be a win for their community. Although if the soldiers were to end up in greater danger due to entering the situation with less physical force because of the psychologists’ recommendations, it could prove to be disastrous. This could also lessen the trust and decrease the role of psychologists in future missions and training opportunities. The leadership style of Lieutenant Yaron was Consultative where he was supportive, had a strong emphasis on the task at hand, and used his experiences to train others. Yaron exhibited an extroversion type personality where he was motivated by the environment around him (Kloppenborg, Shriberg, & Venkatraman, 2003, p. 28) He was also influential when it came to presenting information to other leaders in the Command on the best way to complete the mission. Lieutenant Daniel fits a more transformational style leader where he depends on a lot of communication from management to accomplish tasks and is highly visible and attainable to ensure that the processes he has recommended are being followed through properly. Both leaders share a sense of empathy for those involved in the mission. Both leaders are supportive of their

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
