Seven Rules for the Team Leader
In Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior, I shared my personal leadership code, the seven rules that kept me focused on the mission and my team through more ass-puckering situations than I care to count. Here they are:
I will test my theories on myself first. I will be my own guinea pig.
I will be totally committed to what I believe, and I will risk all that I have for these beliefs.
I will back my subordinates all the way when they take reasonable risks to help me achieve my goals.
I will not punish my people for making mistakes. I'll only punish them for not learning from their mistakes.
I will not be afraid to take action, because I know that almost any action is better than inaction. And I know that sometimes not acting is the boldest action of all.
I will always make it crystal clear where I stand and what I believe.
I will always be easy to find: I will be at the center of the battle.
In Leadership Secrets of the Rogue Warrior, each chapter was dedicated to one of those commandments.
