I am reminded how hollow the label of leadership sometimes is and how heroic followership can be.
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.
Do what you feel in your heart to be right–for you’ll be criticized anyway.
Leadership is the key to 99 percent of all successful efforts.
To do great things is difficult; but to command great things is more difficult.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
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
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 cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
