  1. Advance apologies for the length.
    A long time ago in the Army, we learned the acronym that military leaders have known for thousands of years – 4M. Yes, it is sexist!
    Firat, we learned that the order is critical, because without it…we fail to lead. This is the civilian translation.
    1. Men – People matter most. Without people, who can you lead? If you care more about the mission than you do about the people you are not a leader, you are a dictator.
    2. Mission – Remember the mission. As a leader remember that the mission is more important than you are. Help your followers to stay focused on the mission. Squirrels are not the mission.
    3. Morale – Help people maintain their morale at a very high level. Work hard to keep morale high. People with high morale will accomplish the mission.
    4. Mail – 2-way communication is critical. Without open, honest 2-way communication, failure is inevitable. Encourage people to speak what is on their mind, by asking for their opinion The greatest battles were not won by the ideas of the leaders, but by the ideas of their followers.
