Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
Management is about arranging and telling. Leadership is about nurturing and enhancing.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
