Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
Effective leadership is putting first things first. Effective management is discipline, carrying it out.
Leadership is a potent combination of strategy and character. But if you must be without one, be without the strategy.
Leadership does not always wear the harness of compromise.
