COT: Dwight Eisenhower is a favorite of mine – wasn’t perfect, was a man of his time, but so are we. Before the D-day invasion he had two letters prepared for public consumption: one for victory spreading credit to his officers and soldiers for their sacrifice, and the other taking full personal accountability for the failure – fortunately that letter was not sent.
Here are words from him from readers digest essay from 1965, leadership in the context of humility:
My own conviction is that every leader should have enough humility to accept, publicly, the responsibility for the mistakes of the subordinates he has himself selected and, likewise, to give them credit, publicly, for their triumphs. I am aware that some popular theories of leadership hold that the top man must always keep his “image” bright and shining. I believe, however, that in the long run fairness and honesty, and a generous attitude toward subordinates and associates, pay off.
