“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.”
“Management is doing things right. Leadership is doing the right things”.
– Peter Drucker
Thinking today about leadership in business. Business is business, whether it’s for-profit or not-for-profit. Of course it’s critical to respectfully manage all assets and liabilities to achieve best outcomes.
At Osiris Organization, our assets are our youth in our communities. They really don’t care about mission statements, strategic planning, and boards of directors. They are less concerned with any particular business strategy. Our youth depend on our leadership character, communication -- daily examples of integrity, persistence,-- the cornerstones of successful living. This is what our youth view as Osiris Organization's bottom line.
Yes, I think General Schwarzkopf got it right!
