Leadership Arithmetic

[from Col. Malone’s book, Small Unit Leadership: A Commonsense Approach]

Leaders should be doing one of two things:

  1. Leading soldiers (firefighters) and small units (companies) during battle
  2. Preparing soldiers (firefighters) and small units (companies) before battle

Here’s the formula:

  • Individual Skill x Will to Learn = INDIVIDUAL PERFORMANCE
  • Thinking Individuals x Individual Skill x Will x Drill = LIVES SAVED AND PROPERTY PROTECTED
