Whether it's labeled "Level 5" (Jim Collins) or the "Four E's" (Jack Welch) or something else, we all know that a strong leader is critical to the success of a company. Whether you're managing a department, in charge of a division or running a $10 billion corporation, you'd better have that magic ingredient” (BW, Feb 9 ’04).

4 As Acting General Manager, Henderson was first in line to head the plant, though some had reservations about him. He had applied cost accounting to examining each section of the plant and correcting what was needed to improve operational efficiency. He was good at getting agreements with each unit supervisor on specific production targets and working to see that they were met. People knew what they were to do and whether they had achieved the agreed-upon goals. He made the situation comfortable and smooth-running. He was liked by those around him, but he was colorless and did not inspire anyone to exert themselves to come up with new ideas or to feel or see that they and the plant could become the best in the business under his leadership.
