Leaving a Leadership Legacy - Marshall, Selflessness

General George C. Marshall

General George C. Marshall believed that "only by embracing candor, selflessness, commitment, integrity and courage can a leader achieve the goals of effective leadership."

In George C. Marshall Foundation's "George C. Marshall: Legacy of Leadership: Chapter 3 - Selflessness" we see Marshall's placement of the Army's needs over his own. He offers to resign his position as Chief of Staff in order to lead the way to a more youthful military organization. He knows that he must lead by example to make change.

See for yourself what happens...

Have you experienced a leader who placed the needs of others and the organization before themselves? Share your stories here!
