To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
The final test of a leader is that he leaves behind him in other men, the conviction and the will to carry on.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
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.
I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
A leader takes people where they want to go. A great leader takes people where they don’t necessarily want to go, but ought to be.
