Congratulations @__dsims on your promotion! Stay Fresh ✈️
“I was contemplating on posting this but I deserve to recognize myself for my hard work over the past few years. I have finally been promoted to STAFF SERGEANT (E-5) in the Air Force. 🦅HUGE thank you to all of my mentors who pushed me to be great. 💙”
*Spot Check: The leader does quality assurance by checking that team members are on the right track doing what we think they are doing. If they are off course, there’s a chance to correct the issue in real-time.
* Pulse: The leader also gets a feel for the pulse of the team: How’s morale? How are people doing in the present circumstances? This sparks ideas for tangible responses and actions the entire leader team can make.
* Communication: Trooping the Line serves as a feedback loop on what the leader thinks he has communicated. Has a “simple” message been correctly interpreted? Was there a failure to communicate context – or did context deteriorate as the message went farther out?
* Morale boost: A few moments with a leader reminds the staff that they are a part of the team and that the team cares about them.
For clarification, there’s a vast difference between trooping the line and micromanagement.
One is essential, the other can be counterproductive.
As organizational priorities change, “trooping the line” can be beneficial to the productivity of your team.
What does “Trooping the Line” look like for you as a leader?

In August of 1917 Eugene Jacques Bullard, an American volunteer in the French army, became the first African American military pilot and one of only a few blacks pilot in World War I. Born in Columbus, Ga., on Oct. 9, 1894, Eugene Bullard left home at the age of 11 to travel the world, and by 1913, he had settled in France as a prizefighter. When WWI started in 1914, he enlisted in the French Foreign Legion and rose to the rank of corporal. For his bravery as an infantryman in combat, Bullard received the Croix de Guerre and other decorations.
During the Battle of Verdun in 1916, Bullard was seriously wounded. While recuperating, he accepted an offer to join the French air force as a gunner/observer, but when he reported to gunnery school, he obtained permission to become a pilot. After completing flight training, Bullard joined the approximately 200 other Americans who flew in the Lafayette Flying Corps, and he flew combat missions from Aug. 27 until Nov. 11, 1917. He distinguished himself in aerial combat, as he had on the ground, and was officially credited with shooting down one German aircraft. Unfortunately, Bullard -- an enlisted pilot -- got into a disagreement with a French officer, which led to his removal from the French air force. He returned to his infantry regiment, and he performed non-combatant duties for the remainder of the war.
