Leadership Primer
United States. Department of the Army
This PowerPoint presentation by General Colin Powell outlines 18 valuable lessons in leadership. Some of Powell's lessons include: "Being responsible sometimes means pissing people off; the day soldiers stop bringing you their problems is the day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost day you have stopped leading them. They have either lost confidence that you can help them or concluded that you do not care. Either case is a failure of leadership; Don't be buffaloed by experts and elites; Don't be afraid to challenge the pros, even in their own backyard; Never neglect details; You don't know what you can get away with until you try; Keep looking below surface appearances. Don't shrink from doing so (just) because you might not like what you find; Organization doesn't really accomplish anything. Plans don't accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don't accomplish anything, either. Theories of management don't much matter. Endeavors succeed or fail because of the people involved. Only by attracting the best people will you accomplish great deeds; And organization charts and fancy titles count for next to nothing."

Citing HSDL Resources

Documents from the HSDL collection cannot automatically be added to citation managers (e.g. Refworks, Endnotes, etc). This HSDL abstract page contains some of the pieces you may need when citing a resource, such as the author, publisher and date information. We highly recommend you always refer to the resource itself as the most accurate source of information when citing. Here are some sources that can help with formatting citations (particularly for government documents).
