You must properly command your subordinates, you should behave as a commander but never do the mistake of thinking your subordinates as your servants. You must logically choose your subordinates and should command them to complete the task, if any of your subordinates says or does anything without your instruction then tell him not to do so, or if they are breaking any rule then ask them to go back to the previous point and start again from that point.
Role as Subordinate
As a subordinate you must not do or say anything unless your commander asks you to say or do anything, you must not take any action on your own as a subordinate.
