We have examined several areas about character in the past and it cannot be overstated. Character is the very substance of leadership.
General Norman Schwarzkopf is credited with saying, “Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.”
Character is about the head, heart, and hands of a leader. Determination is the head, development is the heart, and demonstration is the hands of a leader’s character.
Where there is character, there is leadership! We need strategy, but strategy takes a distant second place to the necessity of character.
