You will shine as a Navy leader

"The essence of leadership is making people better. In most cases, people will sense what your expectations are and meet them. If you believe in your people, support them, and challenge them, they will almost always rise up to the occasion and perform superbly.

On the other hand, if you are suspicious, quick to criticize, and unsupportive, they will frequently perform poorly. believe in your people, let them know you trust them, listen to them, be biased toward change and improvement, and you will shine as a Navy leader. In a phrase, people will almost always be what you expect them to be. If one of your principle objectives is to develop those who work for you, success will be assured."
