Coyote’s Rules

A whole lot of men I learned from during my service, were personally mentored by one of the most brilliant men I have ever met. GEN Peter Schoomaker not only commanded SOF elements from the small unit level all the way up to USSOCOM, but he was also called back to active duty from retirement to serve as Chief of Staff of the Army, early in the war.

His Coyote’s Rules are a simple example of his leadership philosophy. I hope you gain from them as much as so many others have.

    #3 all day every day. Been saying it for years. Recently attended a briefing from the Chief of the London EMS about the bridge incident (prior to Manchester) and his #1 takeaway was “all Intel in the first 30 mikes is a bunch of bollocks.” (Or something like that in a Brit accent.)

    I like #5. It fosters creativity. …like when my boys talk about making traps for bad guys that involve cheetahs and spinning blades…
