The iceberg represents your leadership. The 10% above the water is your skill. The 90% below the water is your character.
It’s what’s below the surface that sinks the ship.
Weak character will eventually destroy your ability to lead.
It’s what’s below the surface that supports the tip of the iceberg.
Strong character will hold you up long enough to use your skills.
Truett Cathy knew the difference, and he chose wisely.
We should ask ourselves what’s important and what’s not important. When you live by your character, people respect that.
In memory of Truett Cathy
