When you work with a great Captain, that leads by example life's good.
When you work under a mediocre Captain that works short hours and doesn't participate in daily activities life's pretty crappy.
Captains that make themselves available, listen and freely offer helpful advice, earn the respect and loyalty of their crew. Especially when they lead with a cool head and have good people skills.
Love your Captains style
Leads by example and gives clear instructions and remains calm
Organizes by creating, managing and continuously improving routines
Values and appreciates and support people's efforts
Enables and encourages positive contributions and trust people to do their jobs.
Hate your Captains style
Hands off, shrugs away accountability & plays the blame game
Always barks at crew and never deals with problems
Takes no interest in the crews wellbeing
Ends conversations and instructions abruptly
