Now I finally finished the book I was talking about for several times already – “12 essential skills of software architect”. And now I am even more confident, that all IT people should read this book, not only the people who want to become software architects. Because communication is not the strongest point of most of IT people.
The Chapter 4 of this book talks about leadership, and I would like to share some quotes, which precede this chapter:
Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things
– Peter F. Drucker, Father of Modern Management.
Leadership os the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
– Dwight D. Eisenhower
And one more quote from Eisenhower, which I love so much – I put it in my signature on Enova mail:
You don’t lead by hitting people over the head; this is an assault, not leadership.
