Today’s Quote is from Adm. James B. Stockdale
Click Below to Listen to Today’s Show
Leadership must be based on goodwill. Goodwill does not mean posturing and, least of all, pandering to the mob. It means obvious and wholehearted commitment to helping followers. We are tired of leaders we fear, tired of leaders we love, and of tired of leaders who let us take liberties with them. What we need for leaders are men of the heart who are so helpful that they, in effect, do away with the need of their jobs. But leaders like that are never out of a job, never out of followers. Strange as it sounds, great leaders gain authority by giving it away.”
— Admiral James B. Stockdale
Admiral James B. Stockdale, a great military leader has never been a man to hold back his thoughts. A proven leader, Admiral Stockdale comes out against the type of supposed leaders that have proven to be weak leaders. Admiral Stockdale repeats the qualities of leaders that have shared in the quotes we’ve heard throughout this Leadership series on Goal Getting Quote of the Day. He believes that true leaders are men of the heart that are so helpful they, “effectively do away with the need for their jobs. . . great leaders gain authority by giving it away.”
We hear again, that by inspiring people to realize the ability to understand their own potential, to raise their own bar, to do what needs to be done, builds other leaders and therefore makes you a leader. Inspiring others to step up to a higher standard they choose builds more followers and thus you are able to keep being a leader. That’s inspiring in itself to me.
