Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
All of the great leaders have had one characteristic in common: it was the willingness to confront unequivocally the major anxiety of their people in their time. This, and not much else, is the essence of leadership.
John Kenneth Galbraith
No man will make a great leader who wants to do it all himself, or to get all the credit for doing it.
You don’t lead by pointing and telling people some place to go. You lead by going to that place and making a case.
A man who wants to lead the orchestra must turn his back on the crowd.
Ανάγκη μεγάλων γνωμών και διανοιών, ίσα και τα ρήματα τίκτει
Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.
Become the kind of leader that people would follow voluntarily; even if you had no title or position.
Leadership is the art of getting someone else to do something you want done because he wants to do it.
General Dwight Eisenhower
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, concerned citizens can change world. Indeed it is the only thing that ever has.
