Tough-Mindedness and Compassion in Leadership
Self confidence, emotional control, disciplined, independent, mental strength. These are all attributes that we associate with leaders who are tough-minded and have a focus on successful organizations. But does being tough-minded mean that there is no room for compassion?

Or in other words, tough-minded on focus and tenderhearted in flexibility and agile in all circumstances.
