COLIN POWELL LEADERSHIP POINT

Do you agree with the Colin Powell leadership point? 

The principle is “Command is lonely”.

“Harry Truman was right.  Whether you’re a CEO or the temporary head of a project team, the buck stops here. 

You can encourage participative management and bottom-up employee involvement, but ultimately the essence of leadership is the willingness to make the tough, unambiguous choices that will have an impact on the fate of the organization. 

I’ve seen too many non-leaders flinch from this responsibility.  Even as you create an informal, open, collaborative corporate culture, prepare to be lonely.”
