  • Leadership is a skill that can be natural or a trained skill. It is important for a leader to know where they are at and to continue to grow their leadership skills. According to Crutchfield, there are three actions to the action-centered leadership model; task function, team function and individual function. All three skills play an important role in the model and can improve a unit and agency’s mission and goals. Task function is about identifying the vision or task at hand and incorporating clear goals for everyone on the team. Team function requires the leader to include all members on establishing goals, agrees to the goals and understands their roles in accomplishing the goals. Individual function requires the leader to understand the talents of each member on the team and to ensure that all their needs are met (2017).

  • Leadership can be adjusted to different situations in which we come across. In some aspects someone may be more fit for the situation than you are. In the end we all have the same goal to reach. In team functions of the jail we assure that the safety and security is the main goal.
