The officer that accepts mediocrity is actually setting themselves up to receive less than the standard. Expect high levels of performance, and in the event that those under you are human and fall short of the expectations, they should still be doing better than what is required. This goes for everything we do. On the other side of this, you can’t expect perfection without being able to accept that they will make mistakes because no one can maintain perfection. Like most of the things we do, it requires balance.
