Disc ussi on Q uot e
If the leaders of the small teams that make up the Army are competent, and if their members trust one another, those teams and the larger team of teams will hang together and get the job done. People who belong to a successful team look at nearly everything in a positive light; their winners’ attitudes are infectious, and they see problems as challenges rather than obstacles. Additionally, a cohesive team accomplishes the mission more effectively than a group of individuals.
FM 22-100, 5-103

Combined Arms Leadership Division


Disc ussi on Q uot e
Your subordinates must know – must truly believe – that they’re a part of the team, that their contribution is important and valued. They must know that you’ll train them and listen to them. They don’t want you to let them get away with shoddy work or half-baked efforts; there’s no pride in loafing. You must constantly observe, counsel, develop, listen; you must be every bit the team player you want your subordinates to be– and more.
