When leading up and down the chain of command, remember
1. Take responsibility for leading everyone in your world, subordinates and superiors alike.
2. If someone isn’t doing what you want or need them to do, look in the mirror first and determine what you can do to better enable this.
3. Don’t ask your leader what you should do, tell them what you are going to do.
Waiting for the 100% right and certain solution leads to delay, indecision and an inability to execute.
Dichotomy of leadership: A leader must lead but also be ready to follow.
