What type of leader are you?

Post by Bravo57 »

http://www.military.com/LeaderShipTest/ ... irforce.nl

My leadership style is:

Teddy Roosevelt
Leadership Attributes:
Teddy Roosevelt was a man of action and preferred to lead from the front. He stunned the country when he resigned his powerful and comfortable position as assistant secretary of the Navy to establish and lead the Rough Riders in the Spanish American War. He achieved lasting fame by leading his regiment in a bold charge up Kettle Hill in the Battle of Santiago. Personally, he was upbeat and dominant. As President, he was a skilled diplomat, negotiating many issues favorable to the U.S., including Alaska's boundary with Canada. He even helped bring an end to the Russo-Japanese war of 1904-1905, for which he received the Nobel Peace Prize.

Ulysses S. Grant

Leadership Attributes:
Personally reserved, Grant was tenacious in battle. Once he set a course, he wanted to see it to its end, as in the siege of Vicksburg. He was one to seize the initiative as well. After several failed attempts to get to Vicksburg, Grant moved his army south to cross the Mississippi — during this time he was cut off from all communication and most supplies. The taking of the city on July 4, 1863, was a turning point in the war. Ulysses S Grant's nickname was "unconditional surrender" — and he trusted fighting more than diplomacy. But when opposing forces did surrender, he was usually magnanimous in their treatment.
It’s the unconquerable soul of the man, not the nature of the weapon he uses, that insures victory.- George S. Patton

Wasn't too found of the only two options for each scenario, I could think of an obvious third option for each.

But anyway, here's my result:
Dwight D. Eisenhower

Leadership Attributes:
An avid planner, Eisenhower worked in the army's war plans division and was known for his strong strategic and organizational skills. Eisenhower was given the position of Supreme Allied Commander partially because of his consummate diplomatic skills. He used his skills throughout the war to balance the various Allied personalities. Field Marshall Montgomery said that Eisenhower was the only one with the personality to get all of the Allies to cooperate and win the war. Personally, he was likable and outgoing. Indeed, the motto of his presidential campaign reflected this: "I like Ike."

Robert E. Lee!

Biography:

Robert E. Lee was the legendary commander of the Confederate forces in the Civil War. Against overwhelming odds, Lee scored victory after victory against the Union forces led by seven different generals. Famous battles include: 2nd Bull Run, Antietam, Gettysburg, and — possibly his greatest performance — Chancellorsville. Outnumbered two to one, Lee broke with convention and divided his forces not once but twice — ultimately driving the Federal army under Joseph Hooker from the field.
Leadership Attributes:

Personally, General Lee was reserved and seemed enigmatic to his men. But on the battlefield he was daring and audacious, as at Chancellorsville, where he divided his troops in the face of greater opposing forces. His diplomatic skills were as well-honed as his generalship. For example, in his early role as presidential adviser to Jefferson Davis, he tried to ease the difficult personalities of Confederacy President Jefferson Davis and General Joseph E. Johnston.

Biography:
Born John Paul, he added the name of Jones when he killed the leader of a mutinous crew in 1772. Jones was apprenticed at the age of 12 to a Scottish merchant sailor, and later worked on a slave ship. After the killing incident, Jones came to the colonies and joined the navy when war broke out with Britain. He performed admirably, seizing valuable supplies from British merchant ships. His most famous battle was in 1779, when Jones engaged the British frigate Serapis off Flamborough Head, Yorkshire. The Serapis was a superior ship, more nimble and with more firepower than Jones' Bonhomme Richard. A ferocious gun battle took place. When the enemy called for surrender, Jones answered with the immortal words, "I have not yet begun to fight!"

Leadership Attributes:
During the American revolution, Jones' mission by its very nature required initiative and working without plan. He sailed in a small group in the Atlantic looking for British merchant ships. A natural adventurer, he preferred to be where the action was. Personally, Jones was outgoing and brave in battle.

Teddy Roosevelt!

National Archives




Biography:
Teddy Roosevelt was one of the most dramatic figures in American history. He was both an accomplished civilian and military leader. He captured the nation's imagination by leading the "Rough Riders" in the Spanish American war. As assistant secretary of the Navy under President William McKinley, Roosevelt vigorously worked toward a two-ocean Navy. As President, he was known for advocating environmental conservation, pro-labor policies, and expansionism.

Leadership Attributes:
Teddy Roosevelt was a man of action and preferred to lead from the front. He stunned the country when he resigned his powerful and comfortable position as assistant secretary of the Navy to establish and lead the Rough Riders in the Spanish American War. He achieved lasting fame by leading his regiment in a bold charge up Kettle Hill in the Battle of Santiago. Personally, he was upbeat and dominant. As President, he was a skilled diplomat, negotiating many issues favorable to the U.S., including Alaska's boundary with Canada.

Omar Bradley!
Biography:
Born in Clark, Missouri, Omar Bradley was the son of a schoolteacher. He attended West Point and rose through the ranks in the period between World War I and World War II. Bradley reached the apex of his career in World War II and the years immediately following. Bradley succeeded George Patton as commander of the II Corps in 1943 and led it in the Tunisia and Sicily campaigns. He commanded the 1st Army in the Normandy landings on June 6, 1944. On August 1 he assumed command of the 12th Army Group, the largest field command in US history. After the war, he became head of the Veterans Administration. He then became army chief of staff, and in 1949 he became the first chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.

Leadership Attributes:
Personally, Bradley was self-effacing and quiet. He was often overshadowed by the more flamboyant Patton and MacArthur — which suited Bradley just fine. But he was innovative in his conception of war. He admired William Tecumseh Sherman, and thought he was a master of battle movements. In fact, he thought Sherman was more important than the commanders of battle units in World War I

Wesley Clark

Graduating from West Point at the head of his class, Wes Clark has achieved success throughout his military career. He served in Vietnam; was a key negotiator of the Dayton Peace Accords; and was head of the U.S. European Command. Clark was an Armor Officer who commanded at every level from company to division. As Supreme Allied Commander of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, he led the 19-member alliance to victory in Kosovo — NATO's longest and most difficult military campaign.

General George PattonLeadership Attributes:
Patton was an innovative commander from the start. He learned how to use the tank – a new weapon – from the French and British during World War I. He considered it the weapon of the future before others appreciated its potential. He liked to lead from the front, and he first distinguished himself on the battlefield by leading a tank brigade in WWI. He was more of a warrior than diplomat. In an infamous incident that almost cost him his career, he verbally abused two sick soldiers, even slapping one. After the German surrender, he argued for political taboos: a combined Allied-German campaign against the Soviet Union and using ex-Nazi intelligence personnel. Personally, he was known for racy language and flamboyance.
