My two cents -

As an SF Det CO, I found that there were three key parts to my job.

1. Interfacing with higher and providing guidance to the Team Sergeant/Team on the mission goals.

2. Staying out of the way/being part of the team in planning/executing actual missions (for those who don't get it, the Team plans the missions, not the CO... let them).

3. Betting your bar - being willing to go to bat for your troops and ensure that they didn't get in trouble with higher for unconventional ways of doing things or mischevious actions (with some good sense thrown in, and your own discipline when necessary).
