>1. The most important principle of leadership is to lead by example. If at
>all possible, a leader should have already done that
>which he will ask others to do. 
>2. The best leaders, more often than not, "come up through the ranks." They
>lead by example and by experience. 
>3. An indispensable principle is that the leader believe absolutely in the
>cause for which he is to fight. The devotion of a leader is transferred to
>his men. 
>4. A leader must not observe, but rather share with his men that which they
>are to endure. Leadership does not consist of commanding, but of leading. 
>5. The man who will not do himself, that which he asks others to do, is a
>commander, not a leader. 
>6. There is no room for the theorist in a good leader. His successes are
>measured by accomplishments, not by theories. Good ideas are those that
>work, all others are for speculators. 
>7. Leaders are not given respect, they earn it. If there is no respect from
>the ranks, then the leader must look to himself for the answer as to why. 
>8. The man who after serious thought and deliberation envisions himself a
>leader, usually is not, or he would already be leading instead of
>contemplating doing so. 
>9. There are men who seem to be "born leaders," as well as men who are born
>leading. The former possess a natural ability and talent from the
>beginning, the latter by training and experience. 
>10. A leader is not an island unto himself, he understands people and what
>motivates them. Praise and recognition is given by him to men who are
>successful, concern and help to those who fail. Men in the ranks are always
>given a second chance to prove themselves. No man who has given it his all
>should be judged harshly upon a single incident that may have been subject
>to the vicissitudes of life. 
>11. The hardest task for a competent leader is to delegate authority. Doing
>so, where possible, is what makes him superior to those leaders that can
>12. A truly brilliant leader, is always looking for his replacement.
