Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Leaders aren’t born, they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that’s the price we’ll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
A leader is a dealer in hope.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Earn your leadership every day.
The nation will find it very hard to look up to the leaders who are keeping their ears to the ground.
Sir Winston Churchill
A good general not only sees the way to victory; he also knows when victory is impossible.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
