The Leader: You must also be aware of your own abilities and knowledge. The football coach has to understand that there is no time to develop new tactics or new plays, (This is part of Leadership Program: Leadership Development Program, Leadership Development Programs, Leadership Program, Executive Leadership Development Program) but he must apply what he knows. If he tries to create a play that is beyond his own and his players' understanding and capabilities, his chances of success are poor.

You, as a MCJROTC leader, must also be aware of your limits. There is no sense in attempting something that you know you are not capable of doing. This does not mean that whenever obstacles appear, you can pass the problem to someone else. It means that the most important thing for you to consider is the accomplishment of the task. If you are unsure of the situation and some aspects of the problem seem foreign to you, it might be best to delegate some of your authority to another individual or to seek advice. In some cases, authoritarian leadership is not the best style to use to accomplish a task.

Communication
Communication between you and your subordinates is essential to gain knowledge of each other's abilities and nature. The football coach must see that his plays are communicated correctly to the quarterback. He can do this by using signals from the sidelines or by sending the plays in with other players. Regardless of the method the coach uses, it is still necessary that the plays are communicated correctly. If they are not, the ensuing delay will result in penalties.

As a cadet leader, you must develop your communication skills so that you will be able to convey your ideas with ease. Clear, (This is part of Leadership Program: Leadership Development Program, Leadership Development Programs, Leadership Program, Executive Leadership Development Program) concise orders allow speed in the communication process. In an authoritarian leadership situation, this is of the utmost importance. A situation that requires speed cannot be dealt with if the communication process is inaccurate.

Situation
The knowledge and understanding of these factors is of little or no use if the leader has failed to correctly analyze the situation. You must determine what is going on and what needs to be done to alleviate the problem or complete a task. In a situation requiring the authoritarian leadership style, you must examine these factors as quickly as possible. You must establish the nature of the situation; decide what must be done, and then see to it that it is done.

The football coach must also understand the situation in which he is involved in order to generate a solution. He must examine the field conditions, check the injury report, see how many time‑outs are left, and consider the team's position on the field. This having been done, he is ready to make his decision.

It is often necessary to use the authoritarian leadership style when immediate action must be taken. In spite of the need for immediate action, the leader must still take into account the factors of leader­ship. These are the follower, the leader, communication, and the situation. These factors must also be taken into consideration when using the participative and the delegative leadership styles.
