Thought for today:
‘You manage things; you lead people.’
— Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper

The last week or two I have done a lot of coaching of CEOs, mostly International.
And in those sessions, people management has come up repeatedly.
So I share this quote because it is so appropriate.
Also because Grace Hopper was an inspirational woman.
Like me, she was a computer programmer.
She was much more, a true pioneer in the field of programming.
She was part of the team created the COBOL language, which I used for a time in my first job.
According to WikiPedia, Jay Elliot described Grace Hopper as appearing to be “‘all Navy’, but when you reach inside, you find a ‘Pirate’ dying to be released”.
I like her even more.
