Morale and Discipline: The Mind of a Leader 2 (Enhanced DVD)
Discipline is training expected to produce a desired behavior – controlled behavior: “Discipline in an organization has two purposes. The disciplined leader not only focuses on what the organization needs to do but also uses discipline to focus on – and eliminate – those things the organization should not do”. Discipline should never be an end in itself. It should be used to develop highly trained, efficient law enforcement officers. Those officers with the highest performance have a high level of determination, pride, confidence and self-discipline – a set of self-imposed rules governing a person’s self control. Leaders throughout the world set degrees of discipline, as do religions. Discipline can be a form of voluntary obedience to instructions, commands or expected demeanor.
Discipline is closely related to morale. Morale is the state of mind, an employee’s attitude. Discipline, in contrast, is a state of affairs, or how employees act.
