170 – Leadership – Field Regulation Guide

Listen to this episode

We are reading from the Field Guide Regulations book (from 1914).  We are talking about leadership and going into battle, and how it relates to business.  We have read from this book before (Episode 152) .

The Battle (chapter 7) – Considerations which influence a commander in offering battle.

Decisive success in battle can be gained only by a vigorous offensive.

Half-hearted measures never attain success in war, and lack of determination is the most fruitful source of defeat.

Infantry in attack must not delay the advance or diminish the volume of fire by entrenching.

We have our unique abilities, it is best to make use of those abilities and work together.  You need a team.  As you build your team, each member has a position that they are best at.  You need a team and a plan.
