“Under supervision…”
“Direct supervision” is when the leader maintains, by such controls as his instructions, physical presence, and considerations of time and space, theability to intervene in personimmediately“Indirect supervision” is when the leader maintains responsibility for and influence over his subordinate’s actions, but does not have the ability to intervene in person immediatelyBlueBook para states that “Cadet Corporals will not be allowed unsupervised interaction with fourth class cadets under any circumstances.”The implication in this regulation is that the supervision be direct
“Under supervision…”
The type of supervision you can expect as a Squad Corporal:Your Squad Sergeant delegates to you the authority to get the squad members’ rooms ready for an upcoming inspectionShe remains on the gallery as you go from room to room, observing your activityShe does not intervene unless errors, sloppy work, or lapses occurIf necessary, she is there to answer questions or resolve a problem that you can’t handleBy this technique, the Squad Sergeant is both ensuring the squad is prepared and helping you develop as a leader
“Lead by example”
Leadership is about influencing others to accomplish organizational goals“Leading by example” is more than just following the rules yourselfIt is using the example of your behavior to influence othersHow can you do that?

Lead small groups…
Small group leadership is usuallyDirectFace-to-faceDone in a relatively certain and uncomplicated environmentDirect leadership optimizes leadership by exampleFace-to-face leadership is personal and requires the leader to have a detailed and specific relationship with his subordinatesThe certainty of the environment usually means the task is done in a proscribed way to a proscribed standard
