It is not the critic that counts. The credit is the man who is in the arena, whose face is damaged by dust, sweat, and blood; he fights hard; you make a mistake and falls short again and again; that knows the great enthusiasms, the great disappointments, and is devoted to a good cause; that, in the best cases, you know in the end the triumph of a great accomplishment; and that, at worst, if he fails, has at least one attempt made extraordinary, so his place will never be near those cold and timid souls who don’t know neither victory nor defeat. Thus described the U.S. President.UU, Theodore Roosevelt, the man of action. Always, but more in difficult times, if anything need an organization, is of a type that is, they are men of action. Leaders capable of confronting the problems inherent in any time of crisis, Adaptive. Changing habits, changing practices, convey to others the need to be put in place without delay, are requirements for any leader who seeks to effectively resolve the difficulties are facing, without too many philosophies, nor large maps of prescriptions, but asserting, first and foremost, action. No action by action, not thoughtless action, but if a conscious action of that great part of the problems that face organizations today, are problems that require profound changes, and a resolute attitude of the leaders who lead them.
Very often it is preferable to take a good decision today, that the best decision within one year. A challenge for any leader is to make their subordinates to take dimensions, increasingly greater liability. This implies a resolute attitude of the leader or Manager, to transmit its action, and avoid only control and monitor to the subordinate, so it conforms to your work. A good leader will attempt to surround himself with people of action, and will promote an action-oriented culture in the organization.
