Leadership Quote of the Week - General George S. Patton

Special thanks to Erin Morey for the picture of the III Corps Statue on Fort Hood

When you are in leadership roles, you may have the title, but what are you really doing? In some cases, people can be more hindrance than help, even when they are trying to be a leader. One of the lessons I learned from the military was that I didn’t need to always be providing “leadership”. I didn’t need to lead, and the platoon didn’t want me to follow, so I had to get out of the way! I have a couple of sergeants to thank for teaching a young LT that lesson.

Join us weekdays at 12CST on Periscope (@C4Leader) for our Leadership Lunch, where we will discuss the quote of the day. See you then!
