In human terms, a "good commissioner" is one who cares about his units.
He cares that they are a quality unit. He cares that they follow the
program. He cares that their leaders and boys are all having a good
time. But, he is not the police. He is not there to criticize. He is
there to offer help and be a resource. He may at times have to look the
other way when a unit will not follow his advice. Along with his
communication skill he also needs counseling skills (and of course,
another 9 leadership skills would help).
To sum it up, a good commissioner is a good friend!
