Review: Be methodical in your approach to any rigging task.
Research: Be a student of your profession. Load and rigging data – Don’t start until you get it; don’t stop until you get all of it.
Responsibility: Be willing to give it and receive it.
Reinforcement: Show support for those who work for you and those you work for.
Require: Demand thoroughness of yourself and others for each rigging assignment. Show by example, not by lip service. Require continuing education for everyone.

Resist: Resist the temptation to make decisions for people who need to make them as part of their learning process. Be patient.
Respond: Respond quickly to those who are seeking answers or help. Be wise in how to lend assistance.
Reward: Be liberal in your praise and compliments. Let others know when a job has been done well. Be consistent in your praise of things done, i.e. equal praise for equal jobs.
