Leadership is all about people . . . You have to be people centered. (Late General Colin Powell)

Powell also wrote “[Leadership] is not about organizations. it is not about plans. It is all about people, motivating people to get the job done.” That’s good advice from a man who served as chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and U.S. secretary of state. Some think their foresight and carefully planned strategies are the secret, but unless leaders love their people, failure is certain.

Don’t lord it over the people assigned to your care, but lead them by your own good example (1 Peter 5:3).
