[FLR] “Talent Alone Does Not Make a Leader” | Friday Leadership Report |

Happy Friday,

 

Strong leadership is how World War 2 was won. There is much discussion on whether talent or leadership matters. Both matter. My advice, err on the side of drive & resilience. It wasn’t the most talented soldier that made a difference, it was the soldiers & leaders who were disciplined with courage.

I’ve always considered myself to be just average talent and what I have is a ridiculous insane obsessiveness for practice and preparation.”
