Depends, For officers its mostly the administrative part. For NCO's they better know the job well.

If your subordinates know the job better than you they wont respect you.

That being said, if you come in and respect the knowledge of your subordinates and dont pretend to know everything, they will like you enough to show respect until you are up to speed.

I disagree. If you are incompetent, they will not respect you. One of the reasons many subordinates feel their technical ability trumps their supervisor is because the supervisor is usually a dick or incompetent.

truth. At field training I felt that the person chosen to be flight commander at one time was totally inept. I didn't just feel that way without reason. She didn't have a clue. I didn't respect her much before and I guess I lost what little I had for her afterward. Pretty sure she finished ahead of me in the flight anyway though.
