“I would rather have an army of rabbits led by a lion than an army of lions led by a rabbit.” — Napoleon Bonaparte

Legendary UCLA basketball coach, John Wooden, surmised: “Over 70% of people leave their jobs because of the way they are led.”

General Robert E. Lee lamented: “Our Army would be invincible if it could be properly organized and officered.  There were never such men in an Army before.  They will go anywhere and do anything.  But there is the difficulty — proper commanders.”

The Bottom Line: Leaders know the devastating cost of weak leadership and make sure to place “proper commanders” into those pivotal roles.
