    The Eleven Principles of Leadership
     To help you be, know, and do; follow these eleven (11) principles of leadership taught to every member of our armed forces:
    1. Know yourself and seek self-improvement:
    In order to know yourself, you have to understandyour be, know, and do, attributes. Seeking self-improvement means continually strengthening your attributes. This can be accomplished through self-study, formal classes, reflection, and interacting
    with others.
    2. Be technically proficient:
    As a leader, you must know your job and have a solid familiarity with your employees’ tasks.
    3. Seek responsibility and take responsibility for your actions: Search for ways to guide your organization to new heights. And when things go wrong, they always do sooner or later — do not blame others. Analyze the situation, take corrective action, and move on to the next challenge.
    4. Make sound and timely decisions:
    Use good problem solving, decision making, and planning tools.
    5. Set the example:
    Be a good role model for your employees. They must not only hear what they are expected to do, but also see. We must become the change we want to see – Mahatma Gandhi
    6. Know your people and look out for their well-being:
    Know human nature and the importance of sincerely caring for your workers.
    7. Keep your workers informed:
    Know how to communicate with not only them, but also seniors and other key people.
    8. Develop a sense of responsibility in your workers:
    Help to develop good character traits that will help them carry out their professional responsibilities.
    9. Ensure that tasks are understood, supervised, and accomplished:
    Communication is the key to this responsibility.
    10. Train as a team: 
    Although many so called leaders call their organization, department, section, etc. a team, they are not really teams…they are just a group of people doing their jobs.
    11. Use the full capabilities of your organization: 
    By developing a team spirit, you will be able to employ your organization, department, section, etc. to its fullest capabilities.
