The very essence of leadership is that you have to have a vision. It’s got to be a vision you articulate clearly and forcefully on every occasion. You can’t blow an uncertain trumpet.
Reverend Theodore Hesburgh
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.
To have long term success as a coach or in any position of leadership, you have to be obsessed in some way.
He who has learned how to obey will know how to command.
Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.
Not the cry, but the flight of a wild duck, leads the flock to fly and follow.
What you do has far greater impact than what you say.
No man is good enough to govern another man without that other’s consent.
Lead me, follow me, or get out of my way.
General George Patton
A cowardly leader is the most dangerous of men.
