· Work Styles,Expectations,Team Work,Leadership

When asked, “What was the difference between being a top soldier and top diplomat?” in an interview for US News & World Report Weekly, Colin Powell answered,

“The basic principles of leadership and management are the same: have a common purpose, get everybody aligned in that purpose, treat your people well, give them the equipment and the support they need to get the job done. Recognize those who do well, deal with those that are not doing well. And above all, keep inspiring the people who work for you.”
