A ruler should be slow to punish and swift to reward.
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 supreme quality of leadership is integrity.
Great leaders are almost always great simplifiers, who can cut through argument, debate, and doubt to offer a solution everybody can understand.
General Colin Powell
Τα αποφθέγματα είναι ο σύντομος δρόμος προς πολλή γνώση
I start with the premise that the function of leadership is to produce more leaders, not more followers.
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.
General George Patton
