Chapter: The Nine Situations

11.34

Translation:

Thus the skillful general conducts his army just as though he were leading a single man, willy-nilly, by the hand.

Commentary

An army or a business is made up of individual people. Whilst there is collective action, each is an independent agent. Hence, in order to gain a collective motivation, each person must receive the same message.

Leaders hence must be constant in their purpose and copious in their communication.
