A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Leaders must be close enough to relate to others, but far enough ahead to motivate them.
John C. Maxwell
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
A competent leader can get efficient service from poor troops, while on the contrary an incapable leader can demoralize the best of troops.
John J Pershing
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Lead and inspire people. Don’t try to manage and manipulate people. Inventories can be managed but people must be lead.
Τας δε των σοφών ανδρών γνώμας αρετή πλουτίζειν τους κεκτημένους
If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.
John Quincy Adams
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Great leaders are not defined by the absence of weakness, but rather by the presence of clear strengths.
