Confidant to Captain

The confidant of a leader can become a captain as the team grows with its ever-increasing tasks. This is a great move if the confidant or friend is a competent leader. Competence and trust will make for a great partnership and transition. However, if the confidant is promoted based on trust alone, this places everyone on the team in a difficult position. When trustworthiness is held above competence, the trustworthiness of the leader is forfeited with the rest of the team.
