Timeless Leadership Truths From West Point

Paul Gotthardt348 views

I recently read an article entitled “Be, Know, Do” that described essential leadership and character building truths taught at West Point. I’ve included a few of those points for people to ponder.

What constitutes a leader?

  • There are certain things a leader must BE.
  • There are certain things a leader must KNOW.
  • There are certain things a leader must DO.

A leader of character is someone who chooses the harder right instead of the easier wrong.

Leaders should have:

  • Moral sensitivity
  • Moral judgment
  • Moral courage

More often than not character is formed not in the heat and confusion of battle but in the quiet moments of reflection after the battle.
