3. One who acts thus is no leader of men, no present help to his sovereign, no master of victory.

非人之將也非主之佐也非勝之主也

Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu is talking about the importance of effective leadership and the role of the leader in achieving victory in battle. The quote suggests that a leader who does not act in a decisive and effective manner is not truly a leader, and will not be able to provide assistance to his sovereign (which could refer to a ruler or a superior in a military context) or achieve victory in battle. Instead, Sun Tzu emphasizes the importance of the leader being able to take decisive action and guide their troops towards victory.

A leader who does not prioritize the success and well-being of their employees and the company, is no master of victory.

A leader who does not prioritize the success and well-being of their employees and the company is not an effective leader. Such a leader is unable to help the company achieve its goals and will not be able to lead the organization to victory in the market. If a leader tries to save money by not investing in their employees, they are foolish and short-sighted. This approach is likely to result in a weak team and a weak business. Effective leadership requires a focus on both the success of the company and the well-being of the employees, and a willingness to invest in the development and growth of the team in order to achieve long-term success.
