Army JROTC Mission Statement: "To motivate young people to be better citizens"
In JROTC, teams have an important place in our professional and personal lives. Working in teams is probably an inevitable life experience, even for people who prefer to work alone. There are always student teams, task forces, and activities/events in addition to all of the workplace demands for working in a team. A team generates positive synergy through a coordinated effort. But most importantly, the effectiveness of a team is influenced by both internal and external factors. Internal factors include clear purpose, informality, participation, listening, open communication, shared leadership, consensus decisions, clear roles, and task assignments.
