Through executing our missions and observing various units and their mentality in conducting operations, it seems apparent that excessive concern for force protection or lack of aggression creates an environment in which the enemy is at liberty to target friendly forces at his convenience. Acting on real-time intelligence gathered on the objective allows us to act prior to the enemy being able to adjust or widiin his decision cycle.\n Additionally, Army leaders are unique in that they have typically performed almost all of the duties of those who work under them. If a subordinate is struggling, then he may require additional guidance, supervision, or assistance, but in the end, this will result in a better-developed subordinate, a more smoothly running organization, and more time for you to focus on performing your primary duties.
