I couldn’t say it better myself.
“Leadership is solving problems. The day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help or have concluded you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership.” – Colin L. Powell
“You don’t lead by hitting people over the head – that’s assault, not leadership.” – Dwight D. Eisenhower
“Praise in public; criticize in private.” – Vince T. Lombardi
“Criticism, like rain, should be gentle enough to nourish a man’s growth without destroying his roots.” – Frank A. Clark
