Leadership Quotes – Part III

As a newly commissioned officer, it is quite ordinary to imitate great leaders you have come to know through your study and service. But when you stop imitating others and start leading in your own way, you will emerge as a great leader in your own right.

Dr. Wess Roberts and Bill Ross, Make It So: Leadership Lessons from Star Trek: TNG

This book had a great point about the ST: TNG series. Each main character had an episode highlighting the fact that even though it wasn’t their “specialty”, they were able to restart the warp engines, solve difficult tactical and strategic problems, and operate sophisticated equipment. While they had some aid in the form of computer assistance, they also had the knowledge and skills necessary and the basic leadership skills to get the job done.

All roads seem to lead back to my original Jack Welch quote in Part I. If you have good people who are passionate about what they do, you build their strengths with training, and set them free to do their work, they will find their way. They become leaders in their own right.
