Chapter: Terrain



Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death.


The bond between a parent and their children is very strong. ‘Blood is thicker than water’ as the saying goes. The greatest bond is where people would willingly die for one another.

A bond this strong will mean your people will trust you and follow you anywhere. It also means you must actively care for them.

Businesses that build bonds with their employees engender fierce loyalty, encourage additional work levels and cut the many costs of attrition.
