Seven golden rules to know when leading a team you only live once.

You only live once!You only live once!You only live once!Many times the life and death of a team lies in the leader’s mind.

Life only once, please make “choice”, safety is always the first element of playing outdoors, but also the team leader must master the first element, please always remember: safety is always the first!Safety comes first!Safety comes first!

The second golden rule is to respect the weather

Bad weather can turn a sunny outing into a terrifying, deadly trip to hell.In the case of the aotai route, 80 per cent of the deaths were linked to changes in the weather.

As a team leader, you must judge the weather in time.Sudden changes in the weather may cause the team to lose sight of nothing. The snow and rain may cause the blood of the team members to condense. You seem to lose the ability to think and lose your way.

All of a sudden, you feel the pain of death gripping your heart, you feel helpless.You can’t feel your fingers or toes.Ice congealed in your pallor, and you and your companions cried desperately for help in the storm.It’s too late!Don’t put yourself in any of these situations.Read the weather forecasts carefully to make sure you understand them, think carefully about the weather, and be prepared to “camp in place” and “retreat.”

Bad weather may happen by chance.Mountains, with their own weather laws, cannot be accurately predicted based on today’s weather conditions. We cannot build a weather observatory on top of the mountain.So the team leader should trust the weather forecast system on the one hand, but pay close attention to the changes in the mountain itself.Place a fixed rope where possible, carry a compass, and the camp must have secure lights.Guard against all possible dangers.

The third golden rule is to master the barrel principle

The cask effect principle, as most people know, means that how much water you can hold in a bucket depends on the shortest board.If a bucket is to be filled with water, it must have the same level and undamaged board. If one of the boards of the bucket is uneven or there is a hole in the bottom of one of the boards, the barrel cannot be filled with water.How much water a barrel can hold depends not on the longest board, but on the shortest board.

And that’s where a reliable outdoor team comes in.In outdoor mountaineering, the strength of a team is usually determined by a good leader. When forming a team, the leader should fully understand the ability and physical strength of the team members.

In the march, must pay attention to the member’s condition at any time, according to the weakest member’s physical strength to arrange the traveling speed, at the same time according to the weakest member’s strength to adjust the plan and itinerary, so as to ensure the safety of the whole team.Any organization may face the same problem, that is, each part of the organization is often not good and bad, and disadvantage often determines the level of the whole organization.

This arrangement may feel unfair to some team leaders.But now that you have it, you have to consider the strength of the team in your safety plan.

Golden rule no. 4 listen to your team members’ reasonable opinions and Suggestions

The team is most afraid of speaking up and going it alone.Leaders are often the soul of a group, and can make the difference between life and death.But the team leader is not omnipotent, in many cases the team leader also has to make up his mind.

In fact, the formation of an outdoor team usually consists of old donkeys and new donkeys, and many old donkeys have no worse experience than the leader, especially in the lost, sudden changes in the weather, the team running in some unique experience.Therefore, on the one hand, the team members should always put forward reasonable Suggestions to the team leader, on the other hand, the team leader should also accept modestly, do not pretend to understand, do not show off;Be honest with yourself and your team about your limits.

Golden rule no. 5 these two players are “not allowed”

No spirit of unity and cooperation of the players don’t: stubborn donkey, selfish ass, no organization, no JiLvZhe, they have their own a set of experiences, ideas, concepts, and even a selfish mentality, there is a conflict with the lead some decision and resistance, and many times, sometimes forming a circle, this undoubtedly great impact player originally, also to the entire team of the disastrous consequences, even so the manager cannot manage the players must not take.

The strength difference is too big team members can not take (for ZN and technical lines) : if the strength difference is too big, not only drag the team’s hind legs, but also may produce between the members of the disunity, sometimes: “the person is still a new donkey, you will not take care of.Such players whether it is beauty or handsome pot or refuse it, so good for the whole team.

Golden rule no. 6 building a team “first aid kit”

First aid kit is essential for every team leader.But with that said, you should know to make sure you have your own first aid kit, rather than buying the drugstore’s complete set, which is often packed with things you’re unlikely to need

You should set up a first aid kit for the team according to the known route, so you will know what is in it and how to use it.Many times such a first aid kit can save your life or the life of a teammate.Also, keep a snake venom extractor handy.

Article 7 of the golden rule

There is no need to repeat this cliche, “insurance” can’t save a life, but for the team leader, for the team, for the individual, is really important thing, whether it is a day or two short term or a month long term, the people who do not buy insurance directly to dismiss it.Such teammate is to oneself, is to the family’s irresponsible!

You only live once!You only live once!You only live once!Many times the life and death of a team lies in the leader’s mind.

Life only once, please make “choice”, safety is always the first element of playing outdoors, but also the team leader must master the first element, please always remember: safety is always the first!Safety comes first!Safety comes first!
