Quote From Colin Powell

“In the military, we are constantly judging human material, placing and replacing personnel. By now I had developed Powell’s Rules for Picking People. What I looked for was intelligence and judgment, and most critically, capacity to anticipate, to see around corners. I also valued loyalty, integrity, a high energy level, a certain passion, a balanced ego, and the drive to get things done. Academics and subject specialists are valuable for their expertise. But, above all, I needed people to help me make the NSC trains run on time.”
