You cant stand in the back and yell "charge" and expect your guys/gals to follow you blindly. If you lead the charge side by side, never ask them to do something you wouldnt do, and never treat your people as "less" than yourself. Do this, and they will follow you anywhere without question.

Oh yeah, and always remember....Praise in public, punish/correct in private. Everybody loves an attaboy once in a while, but nothing shuts down guys faster than being scorned in front of co-workers.
