Pro Tip

As an officer in the 82nd Airborne Division, I learned the valuable lesson of "Two Up/Two Down." This approach emphasizes understanding not only your own mission but also the missions of your immediate superior and their superior. By grasping the broader objectives, you can align your goals and actions with the overall organization's direction, preventing unintended consequences. Likewise, getting acquainted with the responsibilities of your direct reports and their subordinates fosters communication and strategic alignment, benefiting the entire organization. While this is “military” in nature, to include the terminology used, adopting the "Two Up/Two Down" mindset in a corporate environment enhances situational leadership and drives success.
