Outstanding leaders go out of their way to boost the self-esteem of their personnel. If people believe in themselves, it’s amazing what they can accomplish.
The growth and development of people is the highest calling of leadership.
Men make history and not the other way around. In periods where there is no leadership, society stands still. Progress occurs when courageous, skillful leaders seize the opportunity to change things for the better.
Harry S. Truman
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.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Anyone can hold the helm when the sea is calm.
To command is to serve, nothing more and nothing less.
The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.
Never give an order that can’t be obeyed.
General Douglas MacArthur
