X. Industries – Your Children

Sun Tzu said: 25. Regard your soldiers as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved sons, and they will stand by you even unto death. 26. If, however, you are indulgent, but unable to make your authority felt; kind-hearted, but unable to enforce your commands; and incapable, moreover, of quelling disorder:  then your soldiers must be likened to spoilt children; they are useless for any practical purpose.

In business: 25. Regard your employees as your children, and they will follow you into the deepest valleys; look upon them as your own beloved daughters, and they will stand by you even unto bankruptcy. 26. If, however, you are lenient, but unable to make your authority felt; kind-hearted, but unable to enforce your commands; and incapable, moreover, of quelling disorder: then your employees must be likened to spoilt children; they are useless for any practical purpose.
