Commander Canadian Army Lieutenant-General J.M.M. Hainse:

Warriors! Whether we like it or not, we are warriors and that’s what we want to have in the Forces. To be a warrior, you don’t have to swear, you don’t have to use foul language, you don’t have to win every marathon yourself, when you talk about this, you have to lead by example, you have to be fit, and you have to inspire. And they will do great things for you.

Training and mentoring subordinates: take advantage of it. One of your first tasks, especially those combat arms, is to make sure that you train those people that are serving under you. Professional development is your business when you’re a CO and you’re part of the command team. You are first and foremost the chief trainer of the organization. People that serve under your command will serve way past you, and they will carry what you have instilled into them; the good, and the bad. So, make sure it’s more good than bad. Right?

But keeping a positive attitude on what you’re doing, a positive outlook, and reminding yourself between you and your Chief why you’re there for and how passionate you are about making the right things, it will bring you a long way.
