A good bias is that I believe every operator has something to offer. I try not to minimize the contribution of any operator and I solicit their opinions and concerns. Many times a point of view was expressed that I had not considered.

A bad bias is I assume everyone understands what I am talking about when I use military terminology. There were times I wouldn’t find out until an AAR that participants of the mission did not understand the terms that I used. I have learned to confirm my terms as I speak and check for understanding more often by requiring back briefs.
