Here is the graphic used to highlight some tips. What would you consider foundational leader techniques NCOs should master?

Over on our sister site NCOGuide.net CSM (Ret.) Dan Elder discusses in his podcast about getting back to the basics, and attempts to identify a few foundational techniques company grade noncommissioned officers should master. Key to a professional leader’s style are in being grounded in the way that they operate, those basic behaviors that set them apart from others.

It is by reflecting on some of those techniques that either confirm our own styles, or fill in gaps that currently exist. #NCO2020
