Giving orders

If the leader moves smartly and well, her example will be followed.  The leader is the pivotal point of any ‘command center’.  What people see and hear is how they too will react.

Leadership includes the’ giving’ and ‘following through’ of orders.Respect and fair treatment of all creates an uneven footing for the leader.  The leaders is no longer one of the ‘boys’. The leadership job requires a pivot for all to access and speak through.  Therefore when in a Parade or ceremonial situation if orders are given smartly – they will be carried out smartly.  This is really important when dealing with many people in a crowded area.  In order to get the commands over to others the leader should have practiced using her voice so that when calling commands it is done clearly and therefore well.   Before the actual commands are given the voice box should have had a ‘warm’ up practice session.

During the commands the accent is always to be on the end of the word eg ‘Atten-SHUN’ or on the last word in the command, ‘Quick MARCH’. Girls should be taught that they do not move until the whole command has been given.
