You manage things; you lead people.
Rear Admiral Grace Murray Hopper
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other.
John F. Kennedy
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.
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.
I must follow the people. Am I not their leader?
It is absurd that a man should rule others, who cannot rule himself.
I am endlessly fascinated that playing football is considered a training ground for leadership, but raising children isn’t.
Dee Dee Myers
Where there is no vision, the people perish.
