Leadership Tuesdays: Total Quality Leadership...Stephen Covey

Management must empower its people in the deepest sense and remove the barriers and obstacles it has created that crush and defeat the inherent commitment, creativity, and quality service that people are otherwise prepared to offer. To receive joy and pride in one's work is the right of all. To achieve total quality managers must become leaders, drawing from their people their greatest capacity to contribute ideas, creativity, innovative thinking, attention to detail and analysis of process and product to the work place. In other words, management must become empowering leaders.

--Stephen R. Covey, Principle-Centered Leadership
