    Good article. On the field, it is really tough to apply these principles of leadership. As a center referee, I think it is difficult to relinquish power given that match critical decisions and match control mostly fall on the center’s shoulders. However, working with individuals over many matches makes it easier to trust the individuals you work with. What are things we can do as a group to continue to develop that trust with each other?
