Respond to changes and opportunities immediately


  1. Command with civility and manage with discipline
    You will earn the confidence and wholesome trust of those you lead. Sensible and consistent orders breed loyalty and mutual trust, while the opposite breeds disloyalty.
  2. Treat those you lead in the first instance with humanity but keep them under control by means of iron discipline and conventional values
    If you discipline your men before they are loyal, they will be hard to manage, but if you don’t discipline loyal troops, they will be completely useless. So, gain their trust and loyalty by showing competence first.
  3. Look for signs in the way the opponent mobilizes
    Certain behaviors indicate certain attitudes and thoughts. These add up to a fuller picture of the mental state of your opponent’s team which helps you create targeted, more effective strategies. Certain changes in your opponent’s environment can indicate difficulties that can be exploited in your favor.
