I wrote this almost a decade ago, and I still find that it rings true as ever today:

CrossFit 101 Leadership in 101 words:

“Lead from the front and by example. Always be honest, fair, and most importantly, consistent. Understand that the function of a leader is to give his or her subordinates the best opportunity to succeed. Never ask someone to do something you would not be willing to do yourself. Build confidence by earning repeated successes. Absolute resolve means never quitting. Leadership is a lonely business so vent upwards not downwards. A prerequisite is to care about your people and goals. Take risks; making a wrong decision is better than no decision at all. Great teams both work hard and play hard together.”

Here it is in it’s original format when I wrote it to help me lead my staff when I was working on my college campus:
