The following comes from "Finding The Winning Edge" by Coach Bill Walsh:

·       Remember that praise is more valuable than blame. Remember too, that your primary mission as a leader is to see with your own eyes and be seen by your own troops while engaged in personal reconnaissance

·       Use every means before and after combat to tell the troops what they are going to do and what they have done

·       Discipline is based on pride in the profession of arms, on meticulous attention to details, and on mutual respect and confidence. Discipline must be a habit so ingrained that it is stronger than the excitement of battle or the fear of death

·       Officers must assert themselves by example and by voice. They must be preeminent in courage, deportment and dress

·       General officers must be seen in the front line during action

·       There is a tendency for the chain of command to overload junior officers by excessive requirements in the way of training and reports. You will alleviate this burden by eliminating non-essential demands
