Today’s leadership quote is by Norman Schwarzkopf.
“Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy”
Norman Schwarzkopf (August 22, 1934 – December 27, 2012)
Who is Norman Schwarzkopf?
Herbert Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. was a United States Army general. While serving as Commander-in-chief, United States Central Command, he led all coalition forces in the Gulf War.
Born in Trenton, New Jersey, Schwarzkopf grew up in the United States and later in Iran. He was accepted by the U.S. Military Academy at West Point and was commissioned as a second lieutenant in the United States Army in 1956. After a number of initial training programs, Schwarzkopf interrupted a stint as an academy teacher, and served in the Vietnam War first as an adviser to the South Vietnamese Army and later as a battalion commander. Schwarzkopf was highly decorated in Vietnam, being awarded three Silver Star Medals, two Purple Hearts, and the Legion of Merit.
