The Foundation of Effective Leadership

© Photographer: Stephen Vanhorn | Agency:

“The foundation of effective leadership is thinking through the organisation’s mission, defining it, and establishing it, clearly and visibly. The leader sets the goals, sets the priorities, and sets and maintains the standards. He makes compromises, of course. indeed effective leaders are painfully aware that they are not in control of the universe (only misleaders – Stalins, Hitlers, Maos – suffer from that delusion). But before accepting a compromise, the effective leader has thought through what is right and desirable. The leader’s first task is to be the trumpet that sounds a clear sound.” Peter Drucker
