The Five Virtues of Generals & Leadership [Quotes]

“Clarity of the mind opens the way to knowledge. Knowledge opens the way to wealth.  Wealth opens the way to the allegiance of people.  With the allegiance of the people you will attract true Men of Worth to your cause.  With the allegiance of such Men of Worth a man can become King of all the world.”The T’ai Kung

Understanding the ethos that it takes a strong character to lead the ranks amongst man is one of the most essential dynamics of true leadership.  For one of the greatest generals and Chinese strategist T’sao T’sao (aka Cao Cao), addressed the following qualities that a general must possess.  They are known as the FIVE VIRTUES;

  1. Severity (Discipline)
  2. Courage
  3. Wisdom
  4. Integrity
  5. Compassion

Sun Tzu, another great general and the author of the “Art of War”, which is considered the Bible to most modern day strategists, also professed similar FIVE VIRTUES amongst his teachings.  They are;

  1. Strictness
  2. Courage
  3. Wisdom
  4. Benevolence
  5. Sincerity

Hence, when studying the great generals and masters, we must look for these eminent characteristics along with doing our best to emulate them.   The Chinese call this “Chun-Tzu”, which stands for, “A True Man of Worth”.

Furthermore, “It is certain only with either fortune or discipline can catastrophe be avoided,   of the two, the only one you can never run out of is discipline.” – General William Westmoreland
