LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLE #2: BE TECHNICALLY AND TACTICALLY PROFICIENT
Know your job. Know your job to the point that you can do it in your sleep. Then once you can do it in your sleep learn to do it an entirely different manner. Your proficiency with what you do is what will set you above and beyond others. As a leader, the pinnacle of leadership is not only being above and beyond your peers but using that technical and tactical proficiency to help others reach your level. See that proficiency is NOT something that should be horded.
Oh no, while popular belief will have you thinking that one leader is enough. Imagine a group, a company, an organization full of leaders that are the top of their game. Those leaders then do everything they can to create new leaders by sharing their skills and knowledge with their followers. Teaching others is how leaders become great leaders. Your followers deserve you at your greatest!
