Slim just plain you.

#1
I am without my copy of Serve to Lead and I am trying to find the Bill Slim quote along the lines of leadership being 'just plain you'. Googling has not been a success, can anybody help please?

Address at West Point, circa 1950:

“If I were asked to define leadership, I should say it is the projection of personality It is the most intensely personal thing in the world because it is just plain you.“
The qualities that distinguish a leader from other men are courage, will power, initiative, and knowledge. If you have not got those qualities you will not make a leader; if you have them, you will.”
––Field Marshal Sir William Slim
