Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
So much of what we call management consists in making it difficult for people to work.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
True leadership lies in guiding others to success. In ensuring that everyone is performing at their best, doing the work they are pledged to do and doing it well.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
