Leadership Isn’t Built on Good Intentions

Jacques Barzun

Historian Jacques Barzun’s observation about the last 500 years of Western civilization applies to more than just general society & culture.

“The point at which good intentions exceeded the power to fulfill them marked for the culture the onset of decadence.” 

At the individual leader level, we can’t get by with merely good intentions. We need to produce results with competence.

Canadian entrepreneur & philosopher Matshona Dhliwayo said,

“One kind deed is more beautiful than a thousand good intentions.” 

To introduce good intentions but then fail to produce in an organization makes the situation worse than the original state.
