Linking Character & Leadership…

“Character is the bedrock on which the whole edifice of leadership rests. It is the prime element for which every profession, every corporation, every industry searches in evaluating a member of its organization. With it, the full worth of the individual can be developed. Without it – particularly in the military profession — failure in peace, disaster in war, or, at best, mediocrity in both will result.”

General Matthew B. Ridgway (1895 to 1993)

General Matthew Bunker Ridgway was a senior officer in the United States Army, who served as Supreme Allied Commander Europe and the 19th Chief of Staff of the United States Army.
