A leader is one who knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way.
It is better to lead from behind and to put others in front, especially when you celebrate victory when nice things occur. You take the front line when there is danger. Then people will appreciate your leadership.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them what to do and they will surprise you with their ingenuity.

A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan executed next week.
Leadership is lifting a person’s vision to high sights, the raising of a person’s performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
