“There’s many a person here who has managed a business. And that business, he has said, ‘I could run that business better if I could just learn to be meaner.’ Anybody here ever had that feeling? …
“Yeah, he’d do much better if he could be meaner. That is some kind of a computation that is laid in to keep you from managing anything. If you don’t run on a management level on a total ARC, you just don’t control the area. And your impulse to run on a very high-toned, high-level ARC, is the right impulse, it works out—conclusively.”
“Leadership is practiced not so much in words as in attitude and in actions.”
Businessman, Harold Geneen
