Explain the responsibility an NCO has to each subordinate during the change process.
You have the responsibility to create a positive atmosphere through which each of your subordinates will feel that change is needed and will be supportive of the process. Concurrently, as NCO supervisors, managers and leaders, you must anticipate and deal with any resistance to change. In so doing, you must gain familiarity with and be able to identify each of the following six groups of personalities in your organization: the innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, late adopters, and the diehards. You must realize that people are your single greatest asset, and concentrate your efforts upon those who are willing to "get with the program".
