The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint enough to keep from meddling with them while they do it.
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.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
My responsibility is getting all my players playing for the name on the front of the jersey, not the one on the back.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
A great leader’s courage to fulfill his vision comes from passion, not position.
The most dangerous leadership myth is that leaders are born-that there is a genetic factor to leadership. That’s nonsense; in fact, the opposite is true. Leaders are made rather than born.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
