Mr. Ralph J. Chairman of the board of the general electric company, said this to a leadership conference: “We need from every man who aspires to leadership-for himself and his company-a determination to undertake a personal program of self-development. Nobody is going to order a man to develop…. Whether a man lags behind or moves ahead in his specialty is a matter of his own personal application. This is something which takes time, work. and sacrifice. Nobody can do it for you,”
Mr. Cordiner’s advice is sound and practical. Lice it. Persons who reach the top rungs in business management, selling, engineering, religious work, writing, acting, and in every other pursuit get there by following conscientiously and continuously a plan for self-development and growth.
