The founding fathers were collectively a group of very smart men. They understood that their life depended on their decisions, and they were not afraid to make decisions based on their best knowledge and experience. What they often had, though was a good sense of ethics and virtue and the willingness to consistently display those attributes during even the most trying times.
I found a recent article by Ava Ralph of the Professional Biz Blog, which points out five of the fundamental leadership questions and concerns which face all of us who choose to take management position, and what they did to solve their problems using these principles. It is well worth read. You can find the original article here.
