Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.
– Harold S. Geneen
Harold S. Geneen (1910 – 1997)
Born in Bournemouth, Hampshire, England, emigrated to the United States and later studied accounting at the New York University.
He was the president and CEO of ITT from 1959 to 1977 when he retired.
Further reading: As a leader you need to stay focused when the number of people and activities that require your attention is on the rise. Lack of focus is not only one of the main causes of stress (and the stress statistics worldwide are quite alarming) but it also has an impact on creativity and ultimately our general sense of happiness.
And if that is too much for you, maybe this is all you need: some good relaxation techniques.
Other famous quotes by Harold S. Geneen:
- Better a good decision quickly than the best decision too late.
- Leadership cannot really be taught, it can only be learned.
- In the business world, everyone is paid in two coins: Cash and Experience. Take the experience first. The cash will come later.
