The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure, which is: Try to please everybody.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
