Move the Chains: Simple Guidance to New Commanders

"Commanders must move the chains of their organizations. Simply put, the Air Force is counting on you to leave your organization, having made it better than how you found it. A 'touchdown' might be synonymous to taking your unit to war, fighting bravely and achieving our national objectives. Some commanders are fortunate to lead their units in combat, but, by and large, most do not. So how do we measure good leadership? We measure it merely by gauging the quality of your organization compared to its status when you were handed the guidon." (U.S. Air Force photo/Tech. Sgt. Mercedes Crossland)
