Show Me

2 Jul

“A true leader has the confidence to stand alone,
the courage to make tough decisions, and
the compassion to listen to the needs of
others.  He does not set out to be a
leader but becomes one by the
quality of his actions and
the integrity of his intent.”
–Douglas MacArthur

 

Show me what you speak.
Turn words into work.
Touch my heart,
not my mind alone.
Leave traces of integrity
everywhere you go,
compassion as the result
of your presence.
Be mercifully just and
honorably courageous,
and I will follow you into any darkness.

 

“Leadership is a potent combination
of strategy and character.  But if
you must be without one, be
without strategy.”
–H. Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.
