Don’t necessarily avoid sharp edges. Occasionally they are necessary to leadership.
Ήκιστα πόλεμος επί ρητοίς χωρεί
If you would not be forgotten, as soon as you are dead and rotten, either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.
A leader is best when people barely know he exists, when his work is done, his aim fulfilled, they will say: we did it ourselves.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
The first responsibility of a leader is to define reality. The last is to say thank you. In between, the leader is a servant.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Whatever you are, be a good one.
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
