The challenge of leadership is to be strong, but not rude; be kind, but not weak; be bold, but not bully; be thoughtful, but not lazy; be humble, but not timid; be proud, but not arrogant; have humor, but without folly.
Management is efficiency in climbing the ladder of success; leadership determines whether the ladder is leaning against the right wall.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
My own definition of leadership is this: The capacity and the will to rally men and women to a common purpose and the character which inspires confidence.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
As we look ahead into the next century, leaders will be those who empower others.
Leaders think and talk about the solutions. Followers think and talk about the problems.
The art of leadership is saying no, not saying yes. It is very easy to say yes.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
