In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
We live in a society obsessed with public opinion. But leadership has never been about popularity.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
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.
Leadership cannot just go along to get along. Leadership must meet the moral challenge of the day.
He who has never learned to obey cannot be a good commander.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
