    Default Leadership Quotes

    Leadership I am sure appears here, but when the search function fails to work - a new thread.

    The summary:
    Leadership quotes are ideal for inspiration, guidance and provoking thought. These leadership quotes might help you think about what kind of leader you want to be, consider what leadership is or just give you a feel for what some of the world’s great leaders have reinforced. If you need a leadership quote for a presentation or a talk, go no further. Below are over 50 leadership quotes that are relevant to an army leader.

    The blog's author explains his mission:
    TheArmyLeader.co.uk was created by a former Army soldier to give a home for serving British Army soldiers and officers to share their leadership experiences, offer advice and tips, and provide the tools for others to develop themselves and their organizations. It is unashamedly not purely focused on officers.

    It is only followed by five hundred.

    Default The Lord Down Here. Discipline Lessons from RSM John C Lord MVO MBE

    I don't often find leadership material about NCOs, so here is one and he sounds like a real character:
    RSM John Lord MVO MBE is a legendary character but one that is less recognised these days than he should be. He achieved two notable firsts: the first RSM of 3 PARA (on its formation) and the first Academy Sergeant Major at Sandhurst. RSM Lord was famous for his exacting high standards and his iron discipline.....RSM Lord believed in the power of discipline to give a body of soldiers the strength of will to fight, survive and win.

    Notice the quote in the editor's column on the left: "A Professional leader doesn't grow new followers, they grow leaders".
    Wish I had that posted on my locker when I was working at MCRD San Diego many years ago.

    Default Building morale: a Field Marshal's advice

    Leadership is based on the context. Leadership is also based on the values and identity of the led....Ultimately, battles, particularly those conducted under hazardous conditions and in the face of a numerically superior enemy, turn on the fighting spirit of the soldier. High morale and determination to win can only be developed by hard, tough, purposeful training and with the aid of good leadership…

    Default Leadership Lessons from Terrorists

    Once again from 'The Wavell Room' blogsite and somewhat different:
    This article delivers a brief leadership analysis not of a hero or ally but of an enemy; a past terrorist opponent, the Ulster Defence Association (UDA), focusing upon their application of mission command to identify lessons.
    From the concluding paragraph:
    This is not say that the UDA possessed no talent, many examples of good leadership may be found, notably in attack planning, creating organisational ethos and inspiring volunteers. The UDA’s application of mission command certainly allowed timely decision making, but it lacked the required trust and unity of effort to ensure that such decisions were appropriate. This inability to provide moral leadership represented a critical vulnerability: the ensuing lack of organisational trust was as detrimental to the UDA as the actions of its opponents. It is this which becomes the key lesson of a study of the UDA. In Defence it is our values, standards and ethics that set us apart.
