Apparently, being in charge consists of knowing what it takes to be in charge is to know what it takes to be in charge. It’s like a 4 year degree with 6 years in post grad research all in a single article.
I think Mesa can judge on this as much if not more than me. This is how you gauge which Marine rates Merit. The Marine of lesser rank than you, who needed something and made you want to obey them, THAT is a leader, no matter the rank. The Marine that you gave an order to and corrected you? THAT is a leader. The Marines who know less, and admit it, but ask while being confusing? that is a leader.
It’s easy to be a leader, as long as you have testicles, or don’t give a damn about theirs.
The civilian world doesn’t have that aspect, PERIOD in my experience, and I’ve been in a lot of fields.
