How do you inspire others to live the Warrior Ethos? Teaching and training with the hero models in mind is one way. Establishing unit spirit through shared activities and experiences is another. Talking to your subordinates about the Army Values and the Soldier's Creed, and encouraging them to embody those words is another. And finally, practicing the Warrior Ethos yourself is a powerful way to lead your Soldiers on this path. You must continually emphasize through your own behavior that the Warrior Ethos is not just a philosophy, but a way of thinking and living.

11 Conclusion Just as the nation demands much of its armed forces, the Army demands much of its individual Soldiers, particularly those it sends into harm's way. The Army charges its Soldiers to act in defense of the nation, its values, and its people. That action is tempered and guided from within by the Soldier's Creed and by the four pillars (tenets) of the Warrior Ethos. To develop into an effective leader of Soldiers, you must begin now to live by the seven Army Values, the Warrior Ethos and the Soldier's Creed. Ethos means identity in practice, and the four tenets of the Warrior Ethos are the essence of that shared identity. From that identity comes the trust and commitment Soldiers develop toward themselves, their unit, and you, their leader. From that identity comes success in both war and in peace. Your role as an Army leader is to instill that shared identity in the members of your unit. You have pledged to train and form your Soldiers into a confident, effective, agile, and adaptable team. In turn, they pledge to follow you and serve in the best traditions of the Army. That relationship and those results are what the Warrior Ethos is all about.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
